Let’s Talk About Sex (and Sadism) | H.G. Scott

Let’s Talk About Sex (and Sadism) | H.G. Scott | Women in Ministry | Scoop.it

Preview from H.G.Scott:

"But what concerns me most about the Fifty Shades phenomenon is how deceptive these fantasies are in how they twist the realities of violence against women. This week, The Atlantic published a story that documented the lives of six women from the Pakistani city of Karachi. Aeyesha, 18, was raped in her uncle’s house while she was trying to get bread for her family. Rehana, 37, says that since her husband sees her as an “animal with no rights”, broken ribs, broken teeth, and miscarriages are “routine”. Salma, 39, is often threatened with acid and cries in the shower when she sees her battered body, broken and bruised again and again by her husband."

The Barna Group - 20 Years of Surveys Show Key Differences in the Faith of America’s Men and Women | Women in Ministry | Scoop.it

The Barna Group...

Excerpt:  No population group among the sixty segments examined has gone through more spiritual changes in the past two decades than women. Of the 14 religious factors studied, women have experienced statistically significant changes related to 10 of them. Of those transitions, eight represent negative movement – that is, either less engagement in common religious behaviors or a shift in belief away from biblical teachings.

Linda Bergquist on the New Suburban Poor

Linda Bergquist on the New Suburban Poor | Women in Ministry | Scoop.it

Excerpt: "Did you know that the Bible specifically references suburbs? The division of lands among the tribes of Israel (Joshua 21) references cities with suburbs around them. The word migrawshaw used here is often translated to mean suburb. Animals and their keepers inhabited these suburbs, while most people lived in cities and towns. Clearly, this is not today's suburb."

Every Friday in 2012 I will be sharing guest posts by women that tell stories about women in ministry: serving, planning, leading, or teaching. It could be your story. It could be a story you tell about someone you know.

 

We need to tell stories about women in ministry because God is calling women to productive ministry, but there are a lot of negative voices calling them into question. In some quarters we’ve prevented over half of our churches from potentially embracing their calling"

Her.meneutics: Why Women Leave the Church & Come Back Again>Sharon Miller

Her.meneutics: Why Women Leave the Church & Come Back Again>Sharon Miller | Women in Ministry | Scoop.it

Jim Henderson's 'The Resignation of Eve' offers first-hand accounts (and no small amount of editorializing) of women struggling in local congregations.

 

Excerpt: "In 1997, Mary Belenky, Blythe Clinchy, Nancy Goldberger, and Jill Tarule published an important book titled Women’s Ways of Knowing, in which they explored how women understand themselves, their minds, and their relationship to knowledge, and considered whether the cognitive process of knowing is different between the genders.

 

From their research, the authors discerned five relationships to knowledge, the most basic being “Silence.” “Silent women” were often stranded in an elementary stage of knowing, having no personal voice with which to reflect on knowledge. Without a voice to represent their own perspectives of the world, these women were virtually dependent on the opinions of others.

 

Studies like this one demonstrate the power of having a voice. Expressing one’s self and feeling heard are uniquely human activities that give us confidence to grow and create. We see this human need even in Scripture, including in the psalmist’s statement, “There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard” (19:3)."

The Most Interesting Woman in the World: Woman at the Well

 

By Rose Marie Berger

 

Excerpt:

"Contrast this with the Samaritan woman Jesus meets at the well. What's on offer in John 4 is "living water." But obtaining it requires a more daring leap than the short-term gains of "Interesting Man's" carpe diem philosophy.

Who is the Samaritan woman with whom Jesus holds his longest discussion in the gospels? First, let's clarify what she is not. She is not a whore, nor promiscuous. She's not spiritually dead or "hopelessly carnal," as some male interpreters have claimed."

Her.meneutics: Why Margaret Feinberg Bypasses the ‘Gender Wars’

Her.meneutics: Why Margaret Feinberg Bypasses the ‘Gender Wars’ | Women in Ministry | Scoop.it

Excerpt from Margarent Feinberg on gender.

"Living into who she believes God created her to be is a practice Feinberg speaks of openly and clearly. Though heavily influenced by faithful women, Feinberg does not believe gender heavily informs her spirituality and experience of God. “My personality informs [these things] far more than gender ever could. Gender often remains an acceptable way to stereotype people in the church. I think we’re all made in God’s image—God’s beautiful, breathtaking, complex image and it is good.” Seeing as there are so few women in Feinberg’s generation with an active widely recognized public voice in evangelical circles, I pushed Feinberg on the issue of gender in the church. I asked why she thought there were so few publicly acknowledged female voices and what she imagined could help increase the number speaking into both Christian and mainstream circles. “Men are often the gatekeepers for raising up women leaders. I think we need to celebrate those who are creating space for women to teach and lead.” When asked to expand on how said male leaders create space, Feinberg believes it happens on a grassroots level in the local church."

K.I.R.M. God is Business " From Day One"'s curator insight, March 19, 6:01 AM

No two Ministries of Serv a nts card by God to be used by God for his glory is the same. When God anoints for his work and purpose he don't need man pemissin or agreement to except his chosen vessel as for sure man didn't except Jesus and he is the Son of God one of the three as one Trinity. If you are not excepted by some just know they are not the ones God called you to be servant to as Shepherds are Servants to and receive your peace back onto you pack that which took place and under your feet and ask God to direct your steps and move on to that which God has for you to do to be of help to an for others though it may not appear that way to others hold fast to God's plan and ways also. As women are not excepted as Ministers or Servants called to the work of God in Ministry of God but that's no argument the Bible settles that. Deborah was a Prophettess that was. Anointed by God and some don't acknowledge her because the men in authority refused to go to war with their adversary unless Deborahed them in the way. Which they wasooking to her spiritual guidance fro. God not fleshly walk and some men even today take issue with her being a woman which powerful men would make that .most important .I've in battle unless sheed them looking to a woman leading powerful men instead of powerful men being led by God.

A New Mission for the Burnt-Out Mom By Jennifer Grant--Comments on The Missional Mom by Helen Lee

A New Mission for the Burnt-Out Mom By Jennifer Grant--Comments on The Missional Mom by  Helen Lee | Women in Ministry | Scoop.it

Written by Jennifer Grant

 

Excerpt: "In a recent "Stuff Christian Culture Likes" post at Beliefnet, humorist Stephanie Drury poked fun at signs — positioned so that they can be read only when people are leaving a church building or parking lot — that read, “You Are Now Entering the Mission Field.” They remind churchgoers to share God’s love with the people they encounter “out in the world.” In the act of leaving the property, Christians are being sent out, as it were, on a mission."

Are Women On the Verge of Abandoning Christianity? Kevin L Nenstiel #womeninministry

Are Women On the Verge of Abandoning Christianity? Kevin L Nenstiel #womeninministry | Women in Ministry | Scoop.it

Excerpt: "I once visited a Protestant church on the Sunday of their congregational business meeting. After the service, all the women filed dutifully into the kitchen to prepare the pot luck, while the men, who were few in number, stayed in the sanctuary to vote. In other words, while the scarce men undertook church “business,” the copious women actually got stuff done. I couldn’t help remembering this incident while reading Jim Henderson’s The Resignation of Eve.

 

Though Jesus called twelve men into his inner circle, he spent far more time around women than the Hebrews around him. He gave secrets to Mary Magdalene and the Samaritan woman at the well which he never entrusted to men. Though the world he lived in openly favored men, Jesus showed women a level of favor that, in his day, must have seemed downright scandalous. Henderson thinks this sets a standard for Christian gifts being distributed regardless of gender."

Women in Ministry Series: From Woman in Ministry to Woman Who Ministers>Jamie Wright

Women in Ministry Series: From Woman in Ministry to Woman Who Ministers>Jamie Wright | Women in Ministry | Scoop.it

  We’re welcoming Jamie Wright as this week’s guest blogger in the Women in Ministry Series.

 

Excerpt: "I’m just gonna come out and say this: I never, ever, in a million years, wanted to be a “woman in ministry”. Never. And I never in my wildest dreams imagined that one day I would actually be one.

 

I grew up far from any church influence, so the very narrow example I had seen of women in ministry came mostly from television, where they were often portrayed in the form of nosy, judgmental, gossip-loving Bible-thumpers. As a teen, when I finally crossed paths with some real live women in ministry, I found them to be…well…nosy, judgmental, gossip-loving, Bible-thumpers. (“You know who’s going to burn in Hell? You, honey.” That’s how a youth pastor’s wife so gingerly shared the Gospel of Jesus with my 15 year-old self.)"
