Letter to CoB Leaders

Womaen’s Caucus has sent a letter to the Church of the Brethren Leadership Team and several additional denominational leaders calling upon them to watch the full video of “Speaking Truth to Power” that was recorded on July 3. The powerful words and authentic vulnerability of panel members, Debbie Eisenbise, Gimbiya Kettering, and Madalyn Metzger serve as inspiration for the denomination to reflect on structural and cultural patterns that limit participation of so many persons wanting to be a part of our faith community.

The letter requests that denominational leaders ask themselves the same questions posed to the panel, sharing their personal responses with one another as a way of auditing their personal influence on the lives and faith of the persons they lead. In addition, the Caucus identified three ways that the work of the panel is influencing the work of the denomination.
