Calling & Complexity: A Forum on Women & Vocation


Whether women are working at home, professionally, in the wider community or all of the above, women today face unique challenges as they seek to faithfully navigate the complexity of their calling. And the church, though it desires to honor its female members, often stands at a loss for how best to embolden women to embrace God's plan for their lives as persons created in the image of God.

For men and women, finding better language and more flexible frameworks to think about the many dimensions of a woman’s work is essential. Join the Center for City Renewal in New York City on November 19 as they consider how, in the midst of inevitable tensions and limitations, Christianity uniquely addresses the questions so many women face and explore how the church can better equip and support women in their vocation.

This event is led by Kate Harris, author of "Wonder Women," one of the books in Barna's FRAMES series. To find out more about the event, visit the Center for City Renewal. Tickets are $20.
