How wonderful that there is so much interest in talking about our faith in action for justice for women at FPC! Let's keep the conversation going in as many places as possible. If you are a young woman (18-30ish), you are invited to participate in a trial run of a curriculum I am developing for use in young adult groups with my job at the National Council of Churches. (See description below!)
Thanks, Meagan Manas
Young Women Bible Study and Justice Focus Group
If you are between the ages of 18-early 30's, you are invited to attend this group, which will be trying out and evaluating a curriculum currently in development by the National Council of Churches, meant to explore the connections of faith and advocacy through the issue of obstetric fistula. (The age restriction is firm because this curriculum is being developed for campus ministries and young adult groups.) The group will meet after church for an hour and a half on Sept. 13, 27, Oct. 11 and 25. Please contact Meagan Manas at email@example.com if you would like to attend or need more information.
