Lent Series: 40 days to End Violence Against Women: Week 5 South AfricaMarch 17, 2010
As we enter the fourth week of Lent, this study course – Cries of Anguish, Stories of Hope: A Lenten Study on the worldwide struggle to end Violence Against Women – takes a small glimpse at the global issue of human trafficking. (http://women.overcomingviolence.org)
“What it takes to be a Man,” This film was made in 2009 by Chedza Media in South Africa. It was commissioned by the World Council of Churches’ Women’s Desk, as part of their campaign on Men and Positive Masculinity for Partnership. For further details, visit WCC’s programme on Women in church and society.
We also have a Bible Study from Dr Fulata Moyo, looking at the book of Ruth through the lens of trafficked women, discussion questions, an interactive reflection page and prayers that relate to the video.
We have provided some links to local support services, in case you or someone in your group finds this study raises issues for them which require professional support.
During this time of reflection and introspection we pray that our videos and studies will be a starting point for you. Thank you for sharing this time with us. The issue of trafficked women is one that touches everyone around the globe. We pray as we learn more about this issue we will be able to see what we can do individually to address this pressing issue.
