Sonia Waters @ PPC

sonia watersWe are fortunate to have as our guest preacher, Sonia Waters.

Sonia is the Assistant Professor of Pastoral Theology at Princeton Seminary. She is an Episcopal priest currently resident in the Diocese of Newark, and has served in parishes in the diocese of Long Island and Newark. She is currently a volunteer chaplain at Carrier Clinic’s addiction treatment center. She has a PhD in Pastoral Theology from Princeton Seminary, her Mdiv from The General Theological Seminary in NYC and her BA from Wheaton college in Illinois. Her interest in pastoral theology grew from her previous work as a case manager in a domestic violence shelter and hotline crisis counselor for a rape crisis center.  Her current research interests include addictions (she has a book about to be published through Eerdmans publishing), attachment and family systems theories, embodiment, and feminist and womanist theologies. She teaches classes on the following topics – dying and grieving, pastoral care of addictions, an introductory class in family systems theory and multicultural care, visuality and creativity in ministry, pastoral care of women, and advanced classes in attachment theory, pastoral theology,  and psychology and oppression.

Science & FaithIn addition to delivering the sermon, Sonia will be joining us again Sunday afternoon from 3:00pm to 4:30pm in Upper Titus Hall.  She will be presenting a Science and Faith Lecture and Q&A, on Brain Research on Addiction.

Rev. Dr. Waters will talk about how and why people become addicted, how addiction progressively changes the brain over time, and how individuals, people of faith, and the community can cultivate compassion and care. A Question and Answer period will follow the lecture. The church is sponsoring this event as part of its on-going care for those with addictions and the people who love and care for them.
