podcast: women, the emerging church and male cultures
Here is a podcast I did with Jenny McIntosh . In a first podcast Jenny describes the ministry of Spirited Exchanges as a ministry to those outside the church. Download file: ethos of Spirited Exchanges: 2 mins : 600K
In a second podcast Jenny and I talk about women and the emerging church. We identify three ways in which the emerging church can exclude women;
- in the way the Bible is used
- in not seeking representation in speaking and in leadership
- in continuing a “culture”, patterns of being and talking, that are male in nature.
Jenny and I then discuss one thing men could do and one thing women could do to increase the place of women in the emerging church. I’m biased but I think it’s one of the most helpful and challenging conversations I’ve had in a long time and I think anyone serious about the future of the emerging church needs to listen and ponder.
