Women Breaking Barriers

As she concludes her term in 2017 as DOC General Minister and President, learn more about how women have influenced our church’s history and continue to shape it today. What barriers have women broken through and what barriers remain? This issue will also begin a series of stories from the Woman-to-Woman Worldwide journey to South Africa and Ghana.

Race and Reality: A Justice Check
Events of the last decade – from the election in 2008 of Barack Obama as the nation’s first black president, to the surge of white supremacist movements in 2016, from the killing of unarmed black men by police, to the rise of a movement, Black Lives Matter – have brought race into public conversation. Read about the ways that institutional racism collides with the “message of reconciliation that has been entrusted to us” (2 Cor 5:19).  Learn how Disciples are doing the hard work of reconciliation. Also featured will be stories about the Woman-to-Woman Worldwide 2016 journey to South Africa and Ghana. Issue includes free downloadable study guide. Mailed in July. (A four-session study guide will be available as a free Download Here.

The Age of Mass Incarceration
The U.S. has the highest prison population (more than two million) and the second highest incarceration rate (698 per 100,000 population) in the world (Wikipedia.org, “Incarceration in the United States”); moreover, African Americans make up a disproportionate share of this population. In the midst of this “prison-industrial complex” readers will discover how the church is following its call to “proclaim release to the captives” (Luke 4:18b). The issue will feature concluding stories from the Woman-to-Woman Worldwide 2016 journey to South Africa and Ghana. Issue includes free downloadable study guide. Mailed in October. Download Here
