Upcoming Events at Highlands Church
May 17, 2018 | 12:00 PM | Thursday
Welcome to She Is Called 2018! She Is Called is a conference, a gathering, a jumping off point for women who lead to connect and discuss issues surrounding their work and calling. Space is limited, so register today!
We believe calling is the internal howl of passion by which we understand ourselves and our work in the world. All too often women, particularly those in faith contexts, have been asked to quiet our passions. We’ve been taught to fear ambition, sacrifice goals, and resign hope. At She Is Called, we believe speaking our passion out loud has the power to rekindle it. We structure all we do around the idea that voicing our hope empowers us.
We believe empowered women are crucial to reverse the abuses that have long gone unaddressed in our culture and churches. Coming together in conversation to share our experiences, hopes, and fears will create solidarity to empower us as we continue to move toward a greater equality.
She Is Called is not a typical conference. Sessions will be conversational; content will form collaboratively. Facilitators will be there to keep things rolling, ask questions to spur further thinking, and guide the process, but your thoughts and insights will be the content.
CONVERSATIONS (Subject to change)
For this gathering we’ve chosen three topics that impact women in leadership. You’ll notice these topics are word pairs. The words in each of these pairs are inter-related. They’re related in our experience of them and in their meaning. Our discussions will seek to understand how these word pairs have impacted our lives and callings.
Sex+Power: Paula Stone Williams & Tina Schermer Sellers
Equality+Equity: Jen Jepsen & TBA
Prevention+Repair: Carla Ewert & Lanecia Rouse Tinsley
In the months leading up to She Is Called, our facilitators will provide readings and media for each topic to help you develop your thoughts. Prep as little or as much as you’d like prior to our coming together.
You can read/absorb provided material for all the topics, only the ones you're interested in, or just jump in when you get here. Each conversation will happen twice (if you're like me, you always think of something you didn't say the first time).
Our hope is that out of our time together, you will hear yourself and others speak passion. That speaking
