Jo-Ann Badley explores artistic depictions of Gabriel’s visit to Mary to open our imaginations to God’s presence.
Jo-Ann Badley is the dean of the Faculty of Theology at Ambrose University where she also teaches New Testament and hermeneutics. She is a Protestant actively involved in ecumenical dialogue. She has been intrigued by Mary for twenty-five years.
Jo-Ann Badley and Stephanie Neill propose that the current interest in food in North American culture redresses cultural patterns of detachment in ways consonant with New Testament practices of communion, calling us to gratitude and recognition of the relational character of human living.
