As CBE travels, we have the joy of engaging old friends and forming new friends, too. Meeting kindred spirits, on the egalitarian journey, is truly one directed by God! We notice, wherever we go, Christians who are seeking God for answers on many aspects of gender and faith. We count it all joy, when we have opportunities to engage them as they quest for God’s truth and guidance! Here are a few instances of new friends we met recently, whose path intersected with CBE’s, thanks to God’s great provisions.
This past March CBE editors had the opportunity to interview Peter Furler, the lead singer from the Newsboys. In exploring the topics of gender, justice and gift-based ministry, Peter drew not only from his own marriage and family life, but also upon his ministry experiences in developing countries. You won’t want to miss reading his thoughtful perspectives, available in the next issue of Mutuality.
When we traveled to India this February we joined many new friends whose leadership advances the gospel by addressing issues of gender and justice, the Trinity, marriage, ministry, and a Christian response to the caste system. These lectures are now available, and their humble and intelligent insights encouraged and equipped us in profound ways.
But the need is still great, and the work continues.
As we prepare to hit the road once again bringing books, resources, and opportunities around the country I am reminded that wherever we are going, God is already present. God’s power is abundantly evident in members and friends—they are serving Christ all around the world, walking humbly, loving mercy and doing the work of justice. My hope is that you would continue to support CBE and one another as we strive together in this great mission.
May God continually refresh you daily with grace!
