SCOPE OF THE WORK
The work of United Methodist women is MISSION.
ADVOCACY AND SERVICE
This has been the driving force since UMW began
in 1869 when eight (8) women met to learn about
women’s health and education needs in India.
They raised funds and sent an educator and
physician to work on behalf of women and
children who were considered “chattel.”
ADVOCACY & SERVICE
“He has told you, O mortal, what is good:
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice and to love kindness
and to walk humbly with your God?”
Micah 6:8
The United Methodist Book of Discipline specifically
charges United Methodist Women to “support ministry
with and advocate for the oppressed and disposed with
special attention to the needs of women, children and
youth.”

mission partners. Ubuntu Journeys are about women of faith
coming together though shared mission to address social issues
and discover new ways of working together, supporting one
another, and growing spiritually. United Methodist Women

UBUNTU JOURNEYS
Each Ubuntu Journey connects women to women for a
faith and mission opportunity that will:
• Witness love and struggle; share challenges and
opportunities.
• Enhance cultural awareness; exchange ideas and skills.
• Learn where the UMW’s Mission Giving goes to
support more than 200 programs in 75 countries.

• Opportunities to become involved beyond
• Funding the Mission and Mission Giving

STEP OUT AND BE BOLD
So what does all this information mean
for us . . . UMW Mavericks who want to
step out and be bold?
We are the newest Resurrection UMW
group and we have yet to find our
“personality” within the Mission, Vision
and Values of United Methodist Women!
STEP OUT AND BE BOLD
The great thing about this group is that
we can determine how we care for one
another, reach out to others, provide
opportunities for learning and spiritual
development, and how we “support, act
and participate” within the connectional
system. How exciting is that!

WHY AND WHAT NEXT?
This event is being held as a result of conversations between United Methodist
Women President (UMW) Sharon Ritter and Social Action Chair Nancy Brown
from The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection who were moved to action
upon reading comments by Rabbi Mark Levin (Congregation Beth Torah) following
the tragedies of April 13 at the JewishPrelude
Community Center and Village Shalom.

In a letter to Attorney General

‘Strangers No More’
Honoring sacred worth of all in confronting hate
by Nancy Brown and Sharon Ritter on August 25, 2014
Women and girls have sacred worth. This passionate belief inspired us to become Ambassadors
for Healthy Families, Healthy Planet, a program of the United Methodist General Board of
Church & Society. This same mindset also inspired us to become involved in United Methodist
Women, currently serving as President and Social Action Chair at The United Methodist Church
of the Resurrection, Leawood, Kan.
We don’t limit the value we place on human life to just women and girls.
We don’t limit the value we place on human life to just women and girls, however. So when a
tragedy occurred in our community on April 13, we joined Jewish leaders to convene a forum
called “Strangers No More” at our congregation.
The tragedy involved an act of hate by a lone gunman who entered the Overland Park Jewish
Community Center and started shooting, killing three persons. Two of the victims, a 14-year-old
boy and his grandfather, were members of Church of the Resurrection. Another victim, a woman,
was a member of St. Peter’s Catholic Church.
None of these victims was Jewish, but rather belonged to “us,” as many would say. But in
reality, they belonged to us all, the Christian and Jewish Communities, and the family of God.
Strangers to one another
After the murders, Rabbi Mark Levin of Congregation Beth Torah in Overland Park wrote a
letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who was coming to speak about the tragedies. “Jews
are seen on a continuum between outsider and beloved friend,” Levin wrote. “But few of our
neighbors truly understand us or our religion, neither do they desire to. We are largely strangers
to one another.”
Few of our neighbors truly understand us or our religion, neither do they
desire to.
These words spoke to our hearts. It was time for the two communities to come together to
become better acquainted, share their stories, culture, traditions and history, and learn from one
another. Out of this came the “Strangers No More” forum.
During the event, Rabbi Rebecca Reice of Congregation Beth Torah and the Rev. Karen Lampe, executive pastor of
the Church of the Resurrection, addressed the interfaith audience, made up equally of Christians and Jews. They
talked about the fundamental precepts and practices of their faiths and religions. They addressed a number of
topics, including the role of prayer, holidays, concept of after-life and view of Christ within their communities.
Foremost, they discussed the similarities and the differences of their faiths without apology, but with great
understanding and desire to hear and learn from one another.
Genuine interest
It was wonderful to witness the genuine interest in the dialogue among participants, seated in groups around small
tables. Even after adjournment, most of the attendees stayed longer to continue their conversations and make plans
to get together for more dialogue and to attend one another’s religious services.
The evaluations we received were overwhelmingly positive, requesting that future events be planned.
As Ambassadors of the Healthy Families, Healthy Planet project, we have experienced the dynamic and sometimes
surprising intersections of the many things ambassadors do in serving God in their church and community. In all
ministry areas we have taken to heart the question: “What would the Church look like if women and girls were seen
as children of God with sacred worth?”
In the case of the shootings, we understood our response to include reaching out to those of the Jewish faith, many
of whom feel as if they are strangers in their midst.
Expand basic idea
While we as Healthy Families, Healthy Planet Ambassadors focus on women and girls, we can expand this basic
idea in so many ways, to those who are marginalized, poor, abused, downtrodden, viewed as “less-than,” chattel,
property, etc.
We now have a wonderful opportunity with our new Jewish friends to discover ways and find commonalities on
how to focus on our shared identity as children of God. Our next event will focus on prejudice and anti-Semitism.
This is on the rise throughout the world, where demonstrators have marched in major cities chanting: "Death to the
Jews," "Hitler was right," "Jews to the gas chambers," and "Reopen Auschwitz."
Just as in Overland Park, locations have been targeted simply because they are Jewish sites.
Sept. 25 marks the beginning of Yamim Noraim, or the High Holy Days, this year. We are using this occasion to
call on our Christian brothers and sisters to pray for Jews throughout the world who are facing anti-Semitic hatred
and violence.
Let’s focus on this question: “What would the community look like if all people were seen as children of God with
sacred worth?”

survivors of human trafficking face significantly high risk of STI transmission and severe damage to their reproductive
health, they often lack access to life-saving reproductive health services. As communities of faith, we are called to
respond to the injustices of human trafficking and inadequate access to health care through mission and advocacy. We

communities can take action. Register at: www.umchealthyfamilies.org
