Of Old Testament Haircuts and New Testament Head Coverings

Are women human? Dorothy Sayers asked the question in a series of essays published in the early 20th century. For many today, it seems absurd—of course women are human!

I AM THE IMMODEST GIRL

I wore this today because I’m insecure. I looked in the mirror and the mirror told me lies. But I believe them, because they’re all I’ve ever known: You’re not enough. You’re not attractive. You’re unloveable. I wore this today because I want attention. I looked in a magazine and the magazine lied. But I …

Considering Women in Ministry

It sounded weird to say “Woman Minister” but then I discovered… As a pastor in rural Missouri, I was teaching a series years ago that brought me to a passage of scripture that seemed in conflict with others. It became a real crisis for me in prayer and study. I had to have answers. I …

Was Paul’s Pastor a Woman?

Phoebe was a woman leader for whom Paul had great respect as is borne out in the language he used to describe her. The power of his words is lost in our English translations but is very obvious in the Greek (Rom. 16:1-2). In fact, an argument could be made from Paul’s own words that …

PANTS ON FEMALES – Is there more to the issue?

Same-sex marriage, mothers no longer working in the home, families going their separate ways with no time together, the feminization of men, the masculinization of women. These are the things I see as I look out over the landscape of our country. I find myself asking, “Where has manhood gone?” and “Where has femininity gone?” …

USA Today: Hijab becomes symbol of resistance, feminism in the age of Trump

For Sameeha Ahmad, the decision to put on the hijab came in psychology class at the University of Maryland. She hadn’t worn one for five years. Her mom did, as did her sister.
