I recently had the great pleasure of interviewing the Reverend Professor June Boyce-Tillman, a feminist theologian and composer of liturgical music.
June unravelled the power of dominant myths and narratives to reinforce (or challenge) the social order, and discussed her latest work Queering Freedom: Music, Identity, and Spirituality. She also introduced me to her collection of sacred instruments, and shared poetry which resonates with her experience as a feminist Christian pastor and theologian.
She reflected on the story behind her work of auto-ethnography – Freedom Song: Faith, Abuse, Music and Spirituality: A Lived Experience of Celebration – and called for more representation of unheard stories through the arts.
