Once upon a time, FEAST was a thing. Then it was not a thing.
It seemed like the end, but FEAST is a thing again!
FEAST is being reinvigorated and I am excited to announce new programming and leadership.
My name is Joliene Wade Gatlin. I graduated from seminary in Berkeley in 2017 with a Masters of Divinity and look forward to studying, questioning, praying, learning, advocating, and serving with you. I am a member of the United Church of Christ and passionate about Constructive Theologies (liberation, feminist, environmental, queer, and process theologies specifically), poetry, justice and peace in the Holy Land, cats, Buffy, Game of Thrones, family, mysticism, national politics, and Jesus (not necessarily in that order… and I’m sure I’m forgetting stuff).
As we begin to gather, get to know each other, and develop events and gatherings, I would love to hear from you about what you would like to see happen at FEAST. Bible studies? Movie nights? Service opportunities? Karaoke? What are YOU passionate about and how can we support you?
In the meantime, please join in for some of our upcoming planned events, follow us on social media (@FeastSantaCruz), and come say hi to me during office hours.
