We will welcome Rev. Beverly Dale (a.k.a. “Rev Bev”) to Old First this Sunday.
Rev Bev, an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and authorized with ecumenical partner status in the UCC., was the executive director of the Christian Association at the University of Pennsylvania for 21 years.
Now she tours her original theater piece “An Irreverent Journey from Eggbeaters to Vibrators” for largely secular audiences and leads workshops, usually within a Christian context.
Her ministry has a very specific and unique focus: to help people of faith heal from the sexual wounding that occurs when they are taught to separate the spirit from the body, and also to provide tools for those who are developing a Christian theology that affirms the body and pleasure as God-given.
The Philadelphia Inquirer profiled her ministry on the “goodness of sex”
Rev. Bev is a member of our sister UCC congregation Tabernacle United Church in University City. We are thrilled to welcome her to our pulpit. You won’t want to miss it.
