Deadline: Feb. 20

Length: 600 to 1,200 words

“Womanist” isn’t just another word for “feminist.” Womanist theology centers the experiences and perspectives of Black women, and its overlap with Anabaptism is significant.

  • What is womanist theology, and why is it important for Anabaptists? How has Womanist theology deepened or informed your faith? What do you wish others understood about it? What can we learn from it? How can it impact our faith communities and our witness?
  • In Scripture, divine wisdom is feminine. In Greek her name is Sophia. What does Sophia help us understand about God? How can imagining God to embody both feminine and masculine qualities impact our faith?

Other ideas/questions:

  • Tell about a woman who has influenced your life and faith.
  • Tell about an Anabaptist/Mennonite woman (past or present) whose story should be better known.
  • Choose a woman from the Bible who may be misunderstood. How do you wish her story were told?

 

 Submissions will be considered for the March 24 issue.
