On Saturday, September 21st, 2013 Wycliffe College invited women from the community to listen to a sharing from the theme, "When Women Read the Bible."
The Rev. Rhoda Luvuno Wabukala shared on "Ministry in Kenya: How God is using women inspired by Scripture to bring His message of love and healing to a broken world." Rhoda is an ordained Priest of the Anglican Church of Kenya and holds a degree in Divinity and a Master's in HIV and Community Care. Her talk on HIV care and the Christian Women Organization: Mothers Union was a blessing to everyone.
Professor Marion Taylor led a session on Debroah and Jael in Judges 4 - 5 and challenged us to read these stories within the cultural context at that time. She lead a time of reflection to ask ourselves, "What might God be saying to us today?"
An audio recording of both speakers are available below.
Artisan Crafts From The Parishes of Nairobi
With micro-financing loan partnerships with Diocese of Kenya, The Mother’s Union of Kenya and the Vine Foundation, women in Nairobi are succeeding to rise above rampant poverty to provide income for their families and orphans. Below are handicrafts made by the women of the parishes of St. Augustine and Emmanuel, Siranga. Both churches are located in the poorest sections of Nairobi and many of the women artisans are widows. All the raw materials (bone bead, horn, dyes etc.) are prepared by hand as is the final assembly. Purchasing an item means supporting a family.
