From our 2014 Ecclesia National Gathering.
The journey of Scripture is one of movement towards egalitarianism—equality of male and female—but within an ancient context where patriarchy ruled. This workshop will explore both the problematic treatment of women within the biblical text (far from an ultimate ethic) as well as the more redemptive side of the equality story. We will also discuss the practical question of what it means to engage our multicultural society and our divergent church context today. Do we whisper, scream or do a little of both?
