10 Aug We Talk about the Tough Questions in this New CD Series
Some of you have heard the story of how God led me into ministry at a time when I didn’t believe women should be in ministry! As you can imagine it was a interesting journey. Then God asked me to take what I had learned and pass it onto others, and so the ministry of God Conversations for Women was born.
Today I’m very excited to announce the launch of a new teaching resource: God Conversations for Women! In this 4-part CD teaching series we explore God’s heart for the 21st C woman in detail. We talk about the tough questions: why Jesus’ ideals of gender equality didn’t gain traction, the impact of the feminism movement, why some churches today still refuse to ordain women and what gender equality has to do with child marriage and gendercide.
1. Unlikely – My story of how a woman who doesn’t believe in female pastors ends up becoming one – and how God helped me work through the theological issues of my head, as well as the identity issues of my heart.
2. What the Bible Says about Women (and Men) This is a chunky message that aims to bring clarity to a complex and often controversial topic. We may believe in gender equality but why do some place limits of women and what about those unusual verses in 1 Timothy and 1 Corinthians that seem to contradict God’s heart?
3. Equal Wheels in a Penny Farthing World. In this message, we look at where we’ve been and where we’re going – how God’s vision has been expressed historically in both the church and the world in order to provide context for what God is doing among women today.
4. The Christian Woman in Leadership – here we look at some practical wisdom for the journey – how we can help facilitate God’s vision for gender equality in our lives and the lives of others.
It’s a series about women, but of course everything that God does amongst his daughters equally impacts the men. So men, you can listen in too!
