December is a special time of the year – I love advent! The expectation of what is to come and the idea of the importance of waiting.
We know that it can be a busy time but please take some time out of your Christmas preparations and have a read of our December update.
This month we have some great offerings for you:
- A Q & A with Gemma Wilson from No More Traffick. She shares how we can help to advocate on behalf of people at risk of being trafficked
- As it is the UN's 16 Days of Activism to end violence against women and girls, Mandy Marshall writes an article on domestic violence and abuse. She also talks about how we can help to end this injustice in our world by helping men and women to work together.
- Hannah Fytche writes a follow up article to the one she wrote on advertising and self-image in women in March. This month she looks at how advertising can impact men and boys.
- A book review of Sarah Bessey’s new book Jesus Feminist - well worth a read - by Helen Forsythe.
Following our very successful Equipping Event this September we are now planning our next one and really want your opinion. So can you please complete this very short survey asking questions about what we should cover at our Equipping Event in 2014.
And don't forget to look out for a special nativity offering from the Sophia Trustees around the 22 December.
All of us at Sophia Network would love to wish you all a very happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year.
See you in the New Year.
