Asking a preacher to “fit it all in” in 9 minutes is like asking a race horse to trot around the track. We are not made for that.
But I did it. A 9 minute talk on gender and the Church.
The response was very affirming. Several male pastors asked if we could have some “sit downs” with their staff to discuss this issue further. Several women shared they felt validated. One guy simple wanted to shake my hand and confess, “I’m scared of you.” I blurted out laughing. It was a great night. An affirming night. God is on the move and we get to be a part of it.
Reshaping our view of women (and men).
