Starr King School for
The Starr King School for the Ministry educates women and men for religious leadership, especially Unitarian Universalist ministry. We focus our concerns on congregational life and public service in the wider community. Rooted in the liberal and liberating values of Unitarian Universalism, we approach education as an engaged, relational practice through which human beings develop their gifts and deepen their calling to be of service to the world.
Front cover: Yoruba women in Nigeria make a type of resist-dyed cloth that they call adire. They make some adire by folding, tying, and/or stitching cloth with raffia before dyeing. This is called adire oniko, after the word for raffia, iko. They also make another type, adire eleko, by painting or stenciling designs on the cloth with starch. Both types are dyed in indigo, a natural blue dye. For more information on West African textiles, visit http://www.du.edu/duma/africloth.
