The sermon "The Women Gather" was delivered at the Claiborne M. Hill Chapel of the American Baptist Seminary of the West (ABSW), a member school of the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, CA on March 2, 2015. It was a continuation of a series of chapel services (since December 8, 2104) dedicated to the #BlackLivesMatter movement, and the first sermon in our series in celebration of Women's History Month. The scripture for the service that night was Jeremiah 9: 17-22 (http://bit.ly/1GzgmTT).
