Q & A on Gender, Bible Translation, and Women Pastors
September 01, 2017 - September 01, 2017

Mimi led a meeting for the Pentecostal Network of Pastors in Uganda on “Q & A on Gender, Bible Translation and Women Pastors.” CBE has been leading monthly meetings with the Pentecostal Network of Pastors in Uganda, a consortium of male and female pastors interested in learning more about CBE’s egalitarian reading of Scripture. Exploring different themes each month, Mimi took questions from over 100 pastors gathered by Skype. Many of these pastors also joined CBE for a two day conference led by CBE’s partner—EFOGE.

Women’s Leadership: Following the Teachings and Examples of Paul
July 21, 2017 - July 21, 2017

The apostle Paul has been the most frequently cited authority restricting women from shared leadership not only in ministry but also in marriage and service to the world. Those who rely on Paul in challenging women’s equal voice and agency often overlook not only the many examples of women leaders building the church beside Paul but also his theological emphasis on newness of life in Christ. This workshop at CBE's 2017 international Conference, "Mutual By Design" will show how 1 Timothy 2:11-15 and 1 Corinthians 14: 34-35 are eddies off the stream of Paul’s egalitarian teachings and practices.

"The Body of Christ: How Our Differences Are Essential and Part of God’s Plan"
April 30, 2017 - April 30, 2017

The web has created enormous capacity for dialogue yet research shows most online communities reinforce stereotypes. How can the body of Christ challenge the devaluation of people based on gender and skin color?

"Enlarging the Jesus Tribe: Outsiders become Insiders"
April 30, 2017 - April 30, 2017

Effortlessly and without much explanation, Jesus welcomed the marginalized living on edges of his culture. His welcome was a great annoyance to his community, and even to his disciples. Yet, Scripture makes clear that the outsiders, denied dignity and welcome, were those Christ intentionally pursued.

"What Language Shall I Use?: Re-examining Feminine Metaphors for God and Inclusive Language for People"
April 29, 2017 - April 29, 2017

Unlike today, Christian theologians have, through the ages, used feminine metaphors for God without apology. For them, this language was not only biblical but theologically rich in communicating the immanence and transcendence of God. By avoiding this language do we minimize the depth of our understanding of God? This lecture will consider the nature of language, the metaphors used of God, and the wisdom of relying only on masculine metaphors for people.

"A Theology of Abolition: How We Read Scripture Has A Global Impact on Girls and Women"
April 29, 2017 - April 29, 2017

Christians working to end sex slavery recognize the crucial role churches have in reading Scripture without a male bias. Since the 1800s, Christians have challenged theological patriarchy as essential to their humanitarian work. This lecture will consider how the church developed a theology of abolition in concert with its humanitarian work and how theology has implications for Christian humanitarians today
