Reimagining the Sacred. Discovering it Within.
A Feminist with Faith
It IS possible for the two to coexist.
Many women have, by necessity, abandoned their faith in order to be a feminist. And many women of faith long to embrace feminism, but fail to see how given their theological framework and the religious context in which they live.
A Feminist with Faith invites both
without compromising either.
A Feminist with Faith, part prose, but more – workbook and personal reflection tool – offers three deeply meaningful steps / practices that invite strong women to strong faith.
1. Recognize a God who looks like you.
Many of us have lost this ability, or never had it in the first place. And in the absence of such, it is incredibly difficult as a woman to find and experience a faith that is relevant or even meaningful. But oh, the potential when we do recognize that God…
2. Continually ask, “What is at stake and for whom?”
A question that parses through cultural messaging, academic and interpretative work, even (and maybe especially) religion. It’s also a question we must ask ourselves.
3. Live in 1st person.
A powerful feminist discipline, it’s value is undeniable when it comes to self-talk, faith-talk, and relational/professional/spiritual strength. Step out of places in which you find yourself observing…or not quite expressing exactly how you feel. 1st person brings you back to yourself; back home.
