13 Mother God with Teresa Kim Pecinovsky

On a light gold background the words, "Teresa created a book that honors the ways Scripture describes God as mother and as beyond male or female while weaving beautiful disability representation into the images." are beside an image of the cover of Mother God. the logo of The Accessible Altar and Ep 13 are by the book cover.

Stephanie and Robyn are joined by the Rev’d Teresa Kim Pecinovsky to discuss her gorgeous children’s book Mother God . They discuss the importance of good theology and diverse representation in the church and in children’s literature.

Born in South Korea and raised in Iowa, Teresa had a brief stint as an ESL teacher in Japan, then landed in Houston, teaching early elementary and earning a Master of Education from the University of Houston. As a Vanderbilt Divinity School and Disciples Divinity House seminarian in Nashville, one of her most unexpected moments was reading Schleiermacher at 5 a.m. while pumping milk for her 4-week-old infant (don’t ask her what she remembers about Schleiermacher now.)
For the past three years Rev. Teresa has accompanied patients, families, and healthcare colleagues through hospice chaplaincy. Mother God is her debut picture book published by Beaming Books. Teresa is also excited to be a contributing writer for the upcoming Shine Story Bible through MennoMedia and Brethren Press. She and her spouse have two adorable and exhausting young children.
