For the month of August, we are going look at our experiences as women in cross-cultural work and life. We want to lift up our voices in celebration of the unique perspectives we bring to areas like member care and training, wrestle with how to keep growing as we talk about sending organizations and chat about the ways we walk with women who return.
We are a diverse community of women with a rainbow of passport covers and theological backgrounds. We come with our different experiences and opinions. Our hope is that the conversations this month challenge us all to think and dream and pray. We want to listen well as different women share.
And we are starting with church.
Conversations are happening around the globe about women and church.
It can feel painful and controversial. It can feel fruitful and timely.
What has been your experience as a woman in the local and expat church? How is your current church experience challenging you to think in new ways?
Join us for the conversations happening in the Velvet Ashes community this month!
