Dr. Weems is a nationally-renowned theologian and an ordained elder in the African Methodist Church whose scholarly insights into modern faith, biblical texts, and the role of spirituality in everyday lives have made her a much sought after author and speaker. She is founder of Something Within, a consulting service providing guidance for women of faith interested in connecting with their inner wisdom as well as interested in balancing faith and work, and their values with their vocation.
I found her blog as a result of the weekly blog campaign started by SheCodes in opposition to Al Sharpton and the NAACP West Palm Beach Branch for their support of Dunbar Village rapists. I imagine that some villagers know Dr. Weems from her books on women's spirituality and wholeness such as Just A Sister Away, I Asked for Intimacy, Showing Mary: How Women Can Share Prayers, Wisdom, and the Blessings of God and What Matters Most: Ten Passionate Lessons from the Song of Solomon.
Dr. Weems lives in Nashville, TN with her husband and daughter. I wonder if the good Reverend Doctor has ever visited the Electronic Village? Perhaps this post will bring her village voice to our blog!
