Thursdays in Black Bible Studies Series 1

Listening, Learning and Responding to the Word of God

Led by Thursdays in Black Ambassadors – leaders in their communities committed to being visible and outspoken against such violence – a series of Bible studies are being prepared for individual and congregational reflection on sexual and gender-based violence. Such reflection will help us listen to the word of God and apply our faith and vision of justice, peace, and love in our contexts today. This first series of reflections address critical topics in our societies and Christian communities that contribute to or respond to gender-based violence and provide diverse perspectives from our wide ecumenical fellowship.

A core group of Thursdays in Black Ambassadors oversaw this Bible study series: Anders Göranzon, Claudia Bandixen, and Karen Georgia Thompson.

Making hidden violence visible

In every country, sexual and gender-based violence is a tragic reality. This violence is frequently hidden, and victims are often silent, fearing stigma and further violence. The Thursdays in Black movement makes this tragic violence visible, supporting victims and actions of resistance and resilience, and standing up together in solidarity towards a world without rape and violence.

Join our movement by wearing black on Thursdays. Wear a pin to declare you are part of the global movement resisting attitudes and practices that permit rape and violence. Show your respect for women who are resilient in the face of injustice and violence. Encourage others to join you. Thursdays in Black: www.oikoumene.org/thursdays-in-black
