In our season finale, Dr. Sandra Glahn joins us to ask what Feminism means in 2017. Drawing from her new book, Vindicating the Vixens, she paints a picture of a church that refuses to dismiss, marginalize or sexual women, but rather creates a just, equitable space for men and women to lead together. How can we refuse tokenism for the sake of justice?
Robbie is a bi-vocational pastor. Tara is a co-pastor. JR. is a solo lead pastor. We explore the advantages and disadvantages of each model, and ask why a person might feel called to each model. Thanks to listener Tanner for the episode request! Plus, some bonus things we’re into in honor of the holiday season.
If we’re serious about empowering women in ministry, what are the essential components? Author, professor and preacher Karoline Lewis joins us to explore the 5 keys of empowering women. We do a deep dive on Key 2: embodiment and vulnerability.
Our most requested topic: how should we understand the language of submission and headship as egalitarians? And how can we celebrate this passage instead of awkwardly ignoring it?
Since we’re a Feminist podcast, we dive into JR.’s new book through the lens of Delilah. Why have we all gotten Samson so wrong? And how can we learn to empathize with villains like Delilah, Judas and even Satan?
In the wake of the Weinstine scandal, women all over the country are sharing stories of their own sexual assaults, using #metoo. How is the Church complicit in creating a culture of abuse? And how can we do better?
