Guest blog post: How (not) To Defend Women in Ministry

Transformation happens in relationship. Few battles are won by throwing scripture in people's face and hoping to sway their opinion. Using the Bible as our foundation is helpful; using it as a battering ram is not. 

Because here's the thing: I don't think scripture changes minds; I think people change minds. Loving someone who challenges your beliefs is - in my experience - the most likely way to crack open our shells of assumption and rationalization and begin to see the light of another way of thinking. 

This is why I think, so often, we're going about Christian feminism all wrong. I put some thoughts down in my latest guest post for Missio Alliance.
