Back in the 1600’s a very brave, but clueless, man asked, “Are women necessary?” This in spite of his clear knowledge that he would not eat much, have no children, and would walk about in shabby filthy clothes. Thea will attempt to explore the question asked so many centuries ago, and in some circles, continues (yes) to be asked.

Thea has lived in the Northern Neck since 1987. Before moving here with her late husband, Alex Abel, and grand-daughter, Eva, she was based in Washington, DC and lived in McLean, Virginia. Her communications firm produced award winning public affairs radio, TV, and films for a wide variety of clients. She is an actor, journalist, a published author, a broadcaster, an NPR commentator and a contributing writer for various magazines. She is most proud of 1) her grand-daughter, Dr. Eva Abel; 2) her involvement with helping to start the Free Health Clinic; and 3) her involvement in the battle for civil rights beginning in the ‘60’s.

Please join us for the 5th Sunday Potluck immediately following the service.
