The Women’s Center will have the pleasure and privilege of hosting the Rev. Robert Gamble, of This Child Here, on his visit to Louisville later this month.
We know those who have heard any of Bob’s stories about working with “children who live under the streets of Ukraine” will share our excitement about this imminent visit. We are looking forward to hearing his stories, seeing the images he has promised to bring, which we hope to have on display in Winn Center (we’re still working on the arrangements for this), and pondering what this example of ministry on the front lines means for us, to what it calls us.
We will be thinking, over the next month, about some of the relationships between working with street children in Ukraine and the basic work of rethinking the paradigm of relationships between women and men, with the ultimate object of securing full justice for all human beings. The relationships are, perhaps, as subterranean as the steam tunnels and networks in which the children with whom Rev. Gamble works every day take refuge. And as structural.
Bob Gamble will preach on the LPTS campus on Thursday, February 21, at 7:00 p.m. in Caldwell Chapel, and will present more about his work at a lunch-hour gathering on Friday, February 22, 12:30-1:30 p.m., in the Women’s Center, White Hall. He will meet with interested students in the Women’s Center on Friday afternoon.
