Wisdom cries out in the street.
Something to think about
In this stirring passage from Proverbs, Wisdom is personified and she speaks with a female voice. She calls out her prophetic message; will people listen, or will they turn away?
Today, powerful male voices still get more attention than female voices. The wisdom of women, particularly women in the global South, is often ignored. How much wisdom do we miss when we fail to listen?
This Autumn, we stand together with our global neighbours in Nicaragua. Angela is one such woman who is bringing her wisdom to the cooperative set up by Christian Aid partner, Soppexcca.
Like others in her community she is experiencing the crisis of climate change. Her income from coffee growing has fallen drastically. Through the support of the cooperative she has moved from growing coffee to growing and selling cocoa.Angela's life has been transformed.
They are one of many examples of how community helps to overcome the chaos caused by crisis.
