Rooted in the prophetic encounter between Jesus and the Samaritan woman at the well, we will examine ways in which women continue to use the wisdom of their lived experience to tell their stories about the in-breaking Kin-dom of God. We will read excerpts of first-person accounts of feminist visions of a more just world, look at contemporary feminist theories and practices of justice and examine women’s contributions to movements of social change
