Discrimination and bias are “hot topic” words. I don’t buy into a philosophy that views history and the world through the lens of oppression. There are more biblical and hopeful worldviews to embrace! At the same time, central to the Gospel message is freedom for those who are oppressed, the restoring of God’s original created order. What role is it appropriate for women to play in DMMs?
How do we release women to be all God has created them to be?
Women are undervalued, underpaid, and often overlooked by the world. As we make Kingdom disciples and start Disciple Making Movements, we must intentionally develop systems that uplift, encourage, and develop women at every level.
I Felt Small and Ignored
We were at a pastor’s meeting for our state. During the break time, couples were milling about in the foyer of the large church where it was being held. Being friendly, we introduced ourselves to various people and chit-chatted. It was a bit awkward. Almost everyone we met assumed my husband was the pastor and I was just his wife.
