Power and Prophecy: Black and White Women in the Church

Rosemarie Mallett, Chine McDonald and Lucy Winkett

What does it mean to say that women are made in the image of God? Join leading women in the church for a conversation about race and gender: what unites us, what divides us, and where change will come from. We’ll talk about power, prophetic voices, naming injustice, what it’s like to be a Christian woman in public, why so many anti-racist and feminist voices are anti-church, the difference between apology and repentance, and how we can hold onto, and live in, hope.
