Some Kavanaugh thoughts. [V. much in process.]

[**I wrote these thoughts last night, and they’re not all the things I think, they’re just some of the things I’m feeling** I know this is nuanced. I know it’s complicated. I’m not trying to present an articulate argument one way or the other. I’m just trying to explain why some women might be exhausted tonight.]

What a day.  Am I right?

I sat in a coffee shop today, headphones plugged into my phone, restlessly shifting my weight, occasionally head in hands, until the woman I was with gently encouraged me to take a break from the Kavanaugh hearing.

Functioning Properly ( + announcement from fabs).

At the end of Women’s Thing, I stood up in front of a room full of women and told them that what I want more than anything in the world, is for all of us to function properly.

The body will grow when each individual functions properly.  I believe my Jesus will come back when the body grows to its full.  So, basically, I need everyone to function properly so my Jesus can come back.

Functioning properly.  All that means I think – is knowing who you are and walking in it.

Easier said then done I guess.

You’re free and obligated [Women’s Thing PART III]

[We had Women’s Thing last week (was that just last week??)  Folks asked for a recording, which obvi, I failed to create. But I figured I’d do a quick series of blog posts to try to recap what we covered and why we even did this thing. Part 1 is here, Part II is here!]

I think a lot of us women are waking up and realizing that some of what we’ve experienced as women isn’t okay and has to change.  And the question that brought many to the Women’s Thing is this: what can we do to help the cultures around us reflect more of God’s view of women?

What does God say about women? [Women’s Thing Part II]

In Part 1 we talked about how God has asked us to stop molding ourselves to what culture says about us, and instead, believe what God says.

What do the cultures you’re a part of tell you about women?

Don’t be conformed to….who? [Women’s Thing Part 1]

If we’re Christians, we are in one sense always living cross culturally.  We have our church cultures, and our work cultures, our friend cultures, our family cultures, and – unless you live and work and socialize all within the walls of the same exact cultural grid (which isn’t super healthy) – you’re probably experiencing some real tension right now.
