CBE Endorsement: I am grateful for and supportive of the indispensable work and witness of CBE and President Mimi Haddad. This Christ-centered, gospel-loving, Scripture-oriented organization is a blessing to the Church. What is more, CBE is a balm to women in general and to women ministers in particular. Meanwhile, it is simultaneously a barb to those who have yet to see that the ground is equal at the foot of the cross and that the Spirit has entrusted women as well as men with gifts and graces that are to be employed for the up-building of the Church and the extension of the Kingdom in this world.
Todd Still serves on CBE's Board of Reference.
