Recently, a small group of people released an article describing abuse that they experienced at the hands of the leaders in a popular social media group for egalitarians called Ezer Rising (ER). The story seems to have come as a shock to many people, especially people who have been friends with the leaders named inContinue reading “A Reaction to the Ezer Rising Story”
Something special happened last night at bedtime. My son Iz, who is nearly 6, is terrified of werewolves. He’s afraid to go to any part of the house by himself after the sun goes down because he’s worried that there will be werewolves. And recently they’ve started visiting him in dreams, too. At bedtime lastContinue reading “Of Children and Monsters”
I’m looking at the stats for the Alabama vote yesterday. I’m ashamed to see the 80% of white Evangelical Christians voted for Moore. But what is more disturbing to me is that the VAST majority of these people believe that the sexual misconduct allegations against him (which include the sexual assault of a 14 yearContinue reading “No Moore Hiding”
Here is this week’s paper for my Old Testament class. As always, I think it could stand to be expanded – there are several points about this passage that I don’t address at all due to the word limit. But I think it’s really important as we read through the prophets to understand that GodContinue reading “God as Husband in Hosea”
I write essays each week as part of my seminary studies. Usually they are not related to the topic of this blog, but the one I wrote today ended up being very appropriate. It’s short – we have a strict word limit. I think this essay could stand to be expanded. But I like itContinue reading “Daughter”
This is a guest post from my friend Charissa Garver. I have two main concerns with using terms like “soft comp” or saying about couples, “They say they are comp but they are probably egal.” My concerns are: Consent and Christian testimony for Jesus. I cannot think of a single woman I know personally thatContinue reading “Torn Curtains”
This past weekend I got to experience the great joy and gift of attending CBE International’s annual conference, this year in Orlando, FL. I was chosen as one of three winners of their student paper contest and I got to read my paper at the conference (which, I learned, will be published probably early nextContinue reading “CBE International Conference”
Recently I read a comic about mental load, which (to ridiculously oversimplify things) is the concept that women hold a disproportionate amount of organization in their minds. We keep in our minds everything that must be done in our homes and for our families. I read the comic about a week too late to avoidContinue reading “Bump in the Road to Equality”
A few weeks ago, I saw a picture of a man holding a sign at a protest. He was wearing a T-shirt that said “True Christian.” His sign was a list of things that women should be: quiet, keepers at home (doing dishes, laundry, ironing, etc), submissive to husbands, silent in church, care-takers of children,Continue reading “Interpreting Gender”
This is a post sent to me by Christal Haner, a dear friend of mine from New York. She writes about her family’s move from pastoral church ministry back to the mission field. For those of you who know my husband, it should have come as no big surprise that God has called him intoContinue reading “Created for More”
