A Conversation with the Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein
of Beauty Tips For Ministers
Friday 22nd July 2011
Newport Pagnell Methodist Church, Milton Keynes
6pm for Dinner, 7 â€“ 9pm Conversation
Victoria, the brainchild behind beautytipsforministers.com who sees herself as the stage mother of American clergy, is visiting the UK this summer and invites all ministers, ordained and lay, to gather with her for conversation.
This is the gospel of Beauty Tips For Ministers: if clergypeople believe that religious life is vital, relevant and beautiful, they should look the part.
Victoria, who writes as PeaceBang, is fond of saying that if we do not project an image intentionally, we will project one unconsciously. She believes that God has made a good gift in you, and you donâ€™t bring an unwrapped gift to Godâ€™s party. She strives to remind us that that although we work from our hearts and our souls, we are also incarnate beings, and that our appearance does matter.
Men and women are welcome to this gathering. It will start with a brief, informal presentation by Victoria, and then she will open the floor up for conversation. If people want to they can bring specific outfits with them or photos, or questions about specific image issues that they are struggling with. The conversation, which is sure to be full of joy and laughter, will begin at 7pm.
This conversation will be proceeded by a bring and share meal to which all are invited. If you come to the meal please bring a dish of food to share.
There is no cost for this event, though donations will be taken to cover the cost of Victoriaâ€™s travel expenses to and from London.
