Worship Series - All You Need is Love: Honoring the Diversity of Women’s Voices in Theology

2014, 27 pp

In February 2014, Mennonite Church USA’s Women in Leadership Project hosted its first national conference, titled All You Need is Love: Honoring the diversity of women’s voices in theology. These resources for worship are based on the actual worship services prepared for that gathering and have been minimally adapted for wider use.

All You Need is Love joined a larger tradition of Anabaptist theologians, ministers and lay people coming together to do theological work born out of women’s experiences. The gathering reflected on what it means to love in the midst of a world rife with struggle and oppression and intended to create space where participants could face certain realities head on: tensions between women of greater and lesser privilege, the need to listen deeply to a wide variety of women’s voices in matters of faith and theology, the difficulty of putting love into action, and the need to stand in solidarity with struggling sisters in our local communities and around the world. It drew attention to the Spirit of God living in the stories of those gathered and in the stories of sisters near and far.

Because the conference was saturated with opportunities to engage intellectually, worship was created as a space in which participants were encouraged to engage physically, spiritually and expressively. The services are constructed from song, dance, breath, drama, silence, poetry and ritual.
