The National Listening Campaign on Women's Ministries

The National Listening Campaign on Women's Ministries was developed as a process to listen primarily to the voices of women within the United Church of Christ. The data was collected for the purpose of envisioning and reshaping women's ministry for the 21st Century. Results will be utilized to assist the church in its response to more effectively meet the needs of women in 21st Century congregations that are reflecting changing demographics, new challenges and emerging dreams.

Update on Healthcare for Women
Recently Common Lot issue 119 shared with readers how the Health Care Reform bill will impact women.  Unfortunately so much of the political rhetoric presented daily by the media is short on real facts.  Faithful Reform in Health Care continues to research and unpack the truth about how the bill will make a difference in women’s lives.  Each day they are sharing information about some aspect of the bill and its effects on women’s lives.  Check out truly accurate information about healthcare reform and its impact on the lives of women by visiting this page and using the left navigation to choose the most current day.  Please note that you will be leaving the United Church of Christ Web Site.

Tapestry Bible Study


Journeys through Revelation:
Apocalyptic Hope for Today
By Barbara Rossing With Suggestions for Leaders by Louise Lawson Johnson

What comes to mind when you think of the book of Revelation?
Scary images? The four horsemen come to unleash destruction?
Mysterious numbers such as “666”? The endtime battle of Armageddon?

In recent years, an enormous prophecy industry has marketed frightening images of Revelation, leaving many people intimidated by this amazing and often misunderstood book. Although brimming with mysterious symbolism, Revelation ultimately is a book of hope that throughout history has sustained people who are oppressed. It is a wonderfully Christ-centered book, full of worship and praise.

In the 2010-2011 Tapestry Bible study, Journeys through Revelation:
Apocalyptic Hope for Today, Barbara Rossing guides us on a journey to meet the crucified Lamb, Jesus. In a journey reminiscent of the ancient Israelites’ exodus from slavery, we are led from an unjust empire and its system of domination, through mythic battles and plagues, until, ultimately, we find ourselves in a renewed creation where God comes to live with us on earth. This brilliantly hope-filled vision speaks to us in the midst of the urgent crises of our day. In a time when all of creation stands at a turning point, a kairos moment, Revelation can help guide the choices we make each day as we seek to live into the renewal that God has for the whole world.

About the Author

She is the author of The Rapture Exposed: The Message of Hope in the Book of Revelation.
