Adam, Eve, and the Other Ethiopian Eunuch


Event Details


A Creative Discussion about the Bible and Bodies

Learn about Ebed Melech and much much more

Liam Michael Hooper, a trans educator for radical faith and justice, together with quirky queer quaker, Peterson Toscano discuss together and with their audience two Bible passages. Part public exegesis and part performance lecture, (and who knows what else might emerge!) the two will share their unique vision of the creation story and the story Ebed Melech, an Ethiopian eunuch in the book of Jeremiah.

In a lively exchange they will interview each other and dialogue about their perspectives about these texts and the bodies represented in them. The audience will then offer their questions and insights.

The entire event will be available on Facebook Live through Peterson’s public Facebook page, but in you are in the Winston-Salem area, you don’t want to miss this rare opportunity.
