Jesus: The Forgotten Feminist

Jesus: The Forgotten FeministThis article was written by Andrea Dean and was first published in Women Matter.

Chris Geraghty, theologian, former priest and former judge of the District Court of NSW, now living in retirement, has written Jesus: The Forgotten Feminist.

Pray as you godaily prayer sessions

Pray as you go is a daily prayer session, designed to go with you wherever you go, to help you pray whenever you find time, but particularly whilst travelling to and from work, study, etc.

A new prayer session is produced every day of the working week and one session for the weekend. It is not a 'Thought for the Day', a sermon or a bible-study, but rather a framework for your own prayer.
