Proclaiming a Fierce Hope: Strengthening Our Voices in the Movement

  • Eden Theological Seminary 475 E Lockwood Ave Webster Groves, MO, 63119 United States (map)

Join justice leaders in St. Louis during the anniversary month of the Ferguson movement to strengthen women’s voices!  

Women's Work preaching clinics give participants practical ways to get into the text and find a prophetic message and voice that is already in it. Participants work through texts that trouble, stir, and challenge the people of God, finding voice, process, and courage to preach. 

Several of the facilitators have Eden connections including Eden’s Associate Dean of Contextual Education and Assistant Professor of Christian Education, Dr. Leah Gunning Francis, the Reverend Dr. Traci Blackmon, Pastor of Christ the King United Church of Christ and the Reverend Dr. Dietra Wise Baker, Adjunct Faculty and Liberation Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Host.
