Have you heard about the women leading the resistance movement these past few months?
The women who organized the largest protest march in history?
The woman who persisted when she was told to stop speaking?
The women who broke from their party for the sake of our nation’s children?
Or the women sitting on airport floors trying to help those who were detained. Some say the gender disparity there was likely 70% female.
A quick google search will yield woman, after woman, after woman, leading and loving peacefully and powerfully. They are getting stuff done. They are speaking truth to power. They are working their tails off. They are healers and prophets, judges and lawyers, mothers and activists, artists, scholars, preachers, teachers. They are inspiring.
CHURCH, WAKE UP!
Can you imagine what could happen to our gospel witness if we unleashed the women in our churches? Can you imagine how many would find the hope and healing of Christ if we valued feminine leadership styles? Can you imagine the transformation in our communities if we supported the creativity and innovation of the women in our congregations?
Trust me, Church, women would lead the revolution and the revival you all are hoping and praying for. Throw open the doors, unbind the chains, and let us get to work.
