Theological Commons hosts two-day WomanPreach! Inc. event
Women from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds are invited to work together on the practice of prophetic public speaking and preaching at MTSO Sept. 29 and 30. Chloe's Circle, presented by WomanPreach! Inc. and MTSO's Theological Commons, will explore the ways in which preachers can share truth in the face of disparity and injustice. The theme is "If You Consider Me a Believer: A Witness to God's Justice for the World."
