Women’s Work

The goal of Women’s Work is to challenge and inspire participants to approach the Biblical text differently. This intensive gives participants a practical way to get into the text and find a prophetic message and voice while proclaiming The Gospel. Using Womanist praxis and group interrogation, each person gets the opportunity to learn, practice, and hone new skills for sermon preparation and preaching.

Texts selected for Women’s Work focus on overlooked texts and Biblical characters: the unnamed, the missing, women, children, marginalized groups, voiceless persons in the text, etc.
