Shalom Sistas: Living Wholeheartedly in a Brokenhearted World |
SHlm / sista: A woman who loves people, follows the Prince of Peace, and never gives up her sass. Shalom, the Hebrew word often translated as peace, was a far cry from blogger and podcaster Osheta Moores crazy life. Like a lot of women, she loved Gods dream for a world that is whole, vibrant, and flourishing. But honestly: whos got the time? So one night she whispered a dangerous prayer: God, show me the things that make for peace. In Shalom Sistas, Moore shares what she learned when she challenged herself to study peace in the Bible for forty days. Taking readers through the twelve points of the Shalom Sistas Manifesto, Moore experiments with practices of everyday peacemaking and invites readers to do the same. From dropping love bombs on a family vacation, to talking to the coach who called her son the n-word, to spreading shalom with a Swiffer, Moore offers bold steps for crossing lines between black and white, suburban and urban, rich and poor. What if a bunch of Jesus-following women catch a vision of a vibrant, whole, flourishing world? What happens when Shalom Sistas unite?
