In this workship, Sarah Ago builds a foundation for anyone who is new to the idea of egalitarian marriage. She begins with God’s original design as described in Genesis 1 and 2 and how the fall in Genesis 3 changes the dynamic of how relationships are lived out. She then examines the redemption that the cross brings into the relationship between men and women, touching on some of the confusing passages in the New Testament. Finally, practical advice on decision-making is offered within the context of an egalitarian relationship.
In this session, we will look at important differences and how we can be creative in ways we support ministries and participate in building God’s kingdom. We will also explore ways how we can increase our support of ministries while also providing for our loved ones.
In this lecture, Dirkey traces the beginnings of patriarchy from the fall through the patriarchal years of the Old Testament. He argues that both Jesus and Paul were against patriarchy before ending by explaining that patriarchy will be abolished in the end times.
As God makes our ministries anew, it can be hard for women to navigate the gap between the here and not yet of gender equality in ministry. How do women practice self-care and how do we teach fellow ministry leaders to lean into the gap of support of women? The diversity of women and our experiences will be explored in this lecture.
