AWE Women’s Indaba
The theme song for the pilot conversation between Saldanha Bay, Ho and Mbeere the participants was ‘Church is moving on’. In this new initiative between Continuing Indaba and Anglican Women’s Empowerment (AWE )there is a real sense of the Church, that is the Body of Christ, moving on and being a force for transformation in God’s world.
A pilot Women’s Indaba Program is planned for 2013, immediately preceding the 2013 meeting of the United Nation’s Commission on the Status of Women. AWE has been bringing delegates to New York for the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women for 10 years. AWE now sees an opportunity to deepen connections that already exist and deepen vital relationships. Using Indaba methodology to create sacred space where all voices are heard equally it is hoped that the group can come to a much deeper understanding of the issues at stake and in doing so, find their common story in ways that allow for transformation; transformation of ourselves, of our work, of our cultures.
The hope is that this pilot will open the door for the women of the Anglican Communion to find the great gift of deeper and more resonate relationships with each other and that in Christ we will find the transformation so needed by our world.
