Everyday vision carriers and armour bearers
We are part of a global awakening of God’s daughters on the earth, recognising His desire for justice and responding to the call to love our local and global neighbours and be carriers of good news.
Awareness is a catalyst for change and equips us to respond effectively.
"There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children."
- Nelson Mandela
We have made remarkable progress in recognising and responding to the needs of the world’s children, yet the need to uphold the rights of orphans and vulnerable children still demands our attention.
“There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women.”
- Kofi Annan
While we've seen transformational steps taken towards a world in which women live free from violence, poverty and inequality, much remains to be done for our sisters, everywhere. #mysisterskeeper
“The opposite of poverty is not wealth. In too many places, the opposite of poverty is justice.”
- Bryan Stevenson
Stunning progress has been made in the past generation on many fronts, however our global family is facing serious challenges, including levels of inequality and record high displacement.
“Change never occurs without first a willingness to be made aware - and willingness to be made aware is a catalyst of all change ...God was looking for and needing a host of girls who would allow their hearts to move beyond statistics to the real lives and real hearts within the statistics.”
You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colours in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.
Every contribution to a Colour Sisterhood project helps to provide tangible response and bring about positive change for children, sisters, and nations.
