Have You Heard?

On March 31, 2014

"But when I was silent and still, not even saying anything good,  my anguish increased. My heart grew hot within me, and as I mediated, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue" (Psalm 39: 2-3 NIV).

My heart burns within me, as I write to you today. Why? Too few of you have had the opportunity to hear the lectures from the conference in Bangalore! Thankful for the knowledge and talent of egalitarian scholars working in Asia, we partnered with these colleagues (at the SAIACS --the South Asian Institute for Advanced Christian Studies) in order to bring their biblical, theological, and social wisdom back to the West.

Their wisdom and ability to think critically and biblically about faith, authority, and gender is outstanding.

Let’s celebrate that the egalitarian movement is not simply a western phenomenon. It is a global reform, ushered in by God’s Spirit, embraced and advanced by Christians of every denomination, working in every country.

Join me in praying for our colleagues in Asia, as they publish a book from the papers read in Bangalore this year. Pray also that God will give them the needed momentum along with the necessary resources to host another conference in the future.
