This workshop draws on the Exodus narrative, as interpreted by Walter Bruggemann, to consider how God calls us to transform our lives both communally and personally.  To resist violence against women our communities need to take three steps:  (1) to critique the violence; (2) to  publically process the pain; and (3) to release a new social imagination.  This workshop will offer an opportunity to reflect on how our communities might engage in these steps.

Registration is requested for the workshop, which begins with check-in at 8:30 a.m. This is free as well.
