Six women from different world regions are retelling key experiences of their lives. They talk about their faith, about overcoming violence and healing, about justice and peace. Water as a source of life in its physical and spiritual meaning serves as a link between the testimonies of the women.
The film is targeted at students in theological formation, groups working on the issue of overcoming violence, womens groups, ecumenical groups and Christian congregations. It can help motivate conversations on spirituality and its relation to social commitment and overcoming violence. Some questions on page 8 of this booklet may help to kick off these discussions.
Elisabeth Raiser is a historian and educator, Barbara Robra is a theologian, photographer and film producer. They published the book With Love and with Passion on women in the churches worldwide.
