Video series examines lives of Disciples women across church

Women's MinistriesAs every family comes to know, the wisdom of women cannot be overstated. Evidence of this is borne out in a new video series that interviews Disciples women from across the life of the church. Entitled simply “Wisdom of Women,” the series examines how women handle life’s many crossroads.

The “Wisdom of Women” is a series of video interviews with Disciples Women from across the life of the church that premiered at the 2010 Quadrennial Assembly. Touching on everything from how and when they heard a call on their lives to balancing wife, motherhood and career – nothing is off limits.

The DVD and study guide are designed to be used by women in any type of gathering. They may use it in groups, viewing one or more segments each meeting followed by discussion. They are also a wonderful study opportunity to use at home for your personal growth. However you choose to use this new resource, your life will be enriched by hearing and reflecting on the Wisdom of Women.

Volume 1 – Nancy Heimer – Rev. Nancy Heimer, retired Program Director in the Department of Church Women (now renamed Office of Disciples Women) is the first interviewee in this new educational series. Hear her reflection on becoming a clergy woman in the 70s, the challenges of prioritizing and balancing motherhood, marriage and career, the challenges and gifts she encountered as she learned to deal with losing her eyesight, and so much more. Study Guide.

Volume 2 – Melvia Fields – The first draft is complete. This volume will be released at General Assembly 2011 in Nashville, TN.

Volume 3 - To be announced

Offered through the Office of Disciples Women, each interview consists of 60 to 90 minutes of conversation and wisdom, edited into 13 short 6- to 10-minute segments. The videos are designed to be used by women in numerous gatherings.
