St. Paul UMC – Tuscaloosa: Women’s Day Brunch



 Dr. Trudier Harris
Sharon Hardy Sealey, Guest Soloist

The Women of St. Paul UMC-Tuscaloosa held their annual Women’s Day program on Sunday, March 16, 2014. It may have been an annual event but it was different and special. Instead of meeting at the church, the worshipful brunch was held on Sunday morning on the campus of historic Stillman College in Tuscaloosa.

This program allowed the church to get outside of the four walls and it provided Stillman College the opportunity to connect with the community. As Dr. Peter Millett, president of Stillman College, wrote, “Stillman has a long history of community involvement and is always striving to increase its level of engagement…. I look forward to continued collaboration between Stillman College and St. Paul UMC.” The church likewise is appreciative of the relationship and opportunity to connect with young people as evidence by the worship leader/”mistress of the Spirit” for the morning, Ms. Jasmine McElwee-Malone, English Education major of Stillman College.

The theme for the morning was “Women Seeking to Use Spirituality for the Enhancement of Education as a Powerful Force.” The message was delivered by Dr. Trudier Harris, a native of Tuscaloosa, member of Bailey Tabernacle C.M.E. Church. She is retired professor from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Currently, she continues to “share her love of language and literature as professor of English at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa.” Drawing upon history, current affairs, the Bible and her own experience, Dr. Harris delivered a dynamic message.
Members of the Steering Committee for this year’s Women’s Day are Tommie Banks, Lawanna Thomas, Edythe Bies, Maurine Mays, Marcia Millet and Sharon Owens. So many other teams worked together with the Steering Committee to produce a successful day.
