Deborah movement: raising up godly women leaders

This was shared with us at the Ruggles Prayer meeting. The Deborah Movement seeks to raise up leaders in our communities.

The Black Star Project is interested in supporting any Deborah movements in our neighborhoods (Chatham, Park Manor, Chesterfield, Roseland Heights, Englewood), so please let them know if you are interested in finding out more.

Here's a press release about several Deborah Movement activities. Check one out and/or start one where you live!

*Join Us For The Deborah Movement: West Side of Chicago*

The Black Star Project presents

The Deborah Movement - West Side!!!

Women as Mothers, Prophetess, Judges, Warriors and Leaders Working to Eliminate Violence in Chicago Wednesday, June 2, 2010, 6:30 P.M.at The Golden Dome 100 N. Central Park Avenue, Chicago, Illinois

Join us for a special kind of Wednesday Bible Study, where we discuss the roles of women in waging war against the forces of evil that have taken over Chicago.

Much of this evening will be modeled after Deborah the Prophetess(Judges 4: 8-9), who was a woman honored for fighting great battles for the Lord with men.

Judges 8) Barak said to Deborah, "If you will go with me, I will go, but ify ou will not go with me, I will not go." 9) And Deborah said, "I will surely go with you.

Women will pray, plan and act to eliminate violence in Chicago. Men who are willing to support strong, positive, pro-active and courageous women are welcome. Women are being asked to sign-up to walk safety patrols in the city and suburbs, mentor young women, teach young mothers, tutor youth, encourage their sons, brothers, husbands and boyfriends to stop killing each other, teach sports to girls, help bring calm to schools, support positive male groups in their efforts to eliminate violence and to pray for peace in our communities.*
