CHICAGO, IL (October 26, 2018) – The latest episode of CovCast, the podcast of The Covenant Companion, features conversations about the Covenant connection to the #MeToo movement and the church’s call to support its women leaders.
Included in the episode:
- An interview with author Kathy Khang, whose book Raise Your Voice: Why We Stay Silent and When to Speak Up challenges readers to speak up and take a stand on important issues, offers encouragement to women who may be afraid to share their stories.
- Covenant pastor Tim Rodgers reflects on what co-leading a congregation with Catherine Gilliard taught him about the church’s ongoing challenge to fully accept women in pastoral leadership.
- Southeast Conference superintendent Catherine Gilliard shares her perspective on #MeToo and her feelings about being the first African American woman superintendent in the ECC.
Companion editors Cathy Norman Peterson and Ed Gilbreath host this third episode of the CovCast series.
CovCast episodes highlight the many facets of the ECC, from the dynamic ministry happening in local churches and on distant mission fields to the latest resources and initiatives from Covenant Offices.
“Podcasts offer us an opportunity to listen to each other—to our stories, to our struggles, to our God-inspired visions for new ministry,” Gilbreath says. “There will be plenty of talking, for sure, but most of all, we want the CovCast to be about listening.”
