"Reading Scripture through a Patriarchal Lens: How Masculine Christianity Distorts Divine and Human Ontology"
November 14, 2016 - November 16, 2016

Dr. Mimi Haddad will present “Reading Scripture through a Patriarchal Lens: How Masculine Christianity Distorts Divine and Human Ontology” at the Evangelical Theological Society, Other Voices in Interpretation. ETS will be held November 15-17, 2016 in San Antonio, TX.

Paper Description: Christian teachings and traditions have repeatedly capitulated to patriarchal philosophy and culture. The result has been a formulation of “male” as more godlike whereby males arrogate authority over females, a position from which females are deemed ontologically inferior. This paper will consider modern examples of masculine Christianity as it distorts not only the nature and purpose of humanity created male and female in God’s image, but as it also misrepresents the nature and purpose of God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

Setting the Record Straight: The Great Champion of Women- The Apostle Paul
November 12, 2016 - November 12, 2016

Join Dr. Mimi Haddad at the Vista Covenant Church in San Diego on November 13, 2016, as she explores and interprets the writings from Apostle Paul.

Throughout history, select writings from the Apostle Paul have been read out of context in silencing and subordination of women to men. This is a great tragedy when you consider Paul’s closest coworkers were women, including the deacon Phoebe, the teacher Priscilla and the Apostle Junia. While Paul silences individuals who are false teachers, leadership for Paul is located in gifting, calling, and character. 

Women in History and Theology
November 06, 2016 - November 11, 2016

Dr. Mimi Haddad, president of CBE, will be teaching “Women in History and Theology” at the Zinzendorf School of Doctoral Studies, Olivet University Women in History and Theology, from Nov 7-12th,  2016. This course is an introduction to the leadership, theological contributions and experiences of women from the Old Testament period through the twentieth century. In each era, we will also consider the historical, theological and philosophical assumptions and events that supported, or more often, limited the fullest participation of women’s gifts and leadership in church and religious life. As church continues to consider the scope of service and leadership open to women in the church and marriage, this course will explore the significance gender has played in shaping theology, ministry and Christian life. Readings, class discussion, multi-media and assignments will enable students to critique the significance of gender in the life of the church today.

Biblical Equality Basics
November 04, 2016 - November 04, 2016

You don't need a seminary degree to understand how the Bible supports the equality of women and men in ministry and in marriage.

Join CBE Greater Boston Chapter at their next meetup on November 5, 2016 from 9am-11am. The chapter will begin to examine the main arguments that are used for and against equality. For example, what implications are there in the creation account that affect gender relations? And what about those words in 1 Timothy 2, "I do not permit a woman to teach"? We will take a look at these passages and have plenty of time for questions and discussion.

Coffee and some light refreshments will be provided. Also enjoy networking and fellowship with other CBE members. 

Become an official member of the CBE Greater Boston Chapter's Meetup page and/or like our Facebook page. For further information, you can contact Deb Beatty Mel at debbeattymel@aol.com
