I’m visiting my friend Ed Cyzewski’s blog house today. Come over and say hi. I’m sharing for his Women In Ministry series, with which I am in love. Here’s a taste:
Unlike other contributors to this fantastic series, I do not have a story of overcoming institutional oppression. I cannot wax poetic about shattering the stained glass ceiling with my particular brand of awesome. I cannot show you the scars from my shackles and share the balm for my wounds with you.
What I do have is a deep and constant stream of encouragement and empathy for those who have buckled under the lies we’ve been fed, as women in the church. I have seen how it can work, how we can operate according to our creation rather than our biology. I have seen it, and it is good.
Want more? You know you do. I can see it in your face. Get on over here and read the rest. Have a super Friday. I know I will. I’m at the lake….
