Katie Hays
This recording is the personal account of Rev. Hays’ call to ministry and the obstacle of her gender in fulfilling that call. It draws on Paul’s own description of himself and his enthusiasm for God’s work in Philippians 3:4b-6. The talk culminates with Hays’ decision to leave the denomination of her childhood, a decision that brought freedom in the gospel but not without a long process of mourning. Read more
New creation dawns with the resurrection of Jesus. We walk, now, in its coming light. New creation means the redemption of the whole created order: human persons as well as human society; the physical world and the animal life that fills it. God calls us to take hold of the coming future and bring it to bear on the present. This is the framework within which we pursue justice and equality in the world. God’s new creation is upon us. And as people of the new creation, we read scripture to have our minds and actions shaped by the future that awaits us. This trajectory toward the fullness of new creation summons us to read scripture as witnesses to the full equality that exists among all people within the new humanity that God is creating in Christ.

Hidden behind much patriarchal thinking is a pervasive patrilineal worldview. The belief that the family line is a male line and that males own and inherit the resources, has colored nearly all our cultures in the past and still accounts for much oppression and sidelining of women. Beulah will speak from her experience in south Asian culture, recognizing that, within families, women often become the perpetrators of discrimination against females. Does that happen to some extent near all of us? The Bible culture too is patrilineal. How shall we view that? Read more
