The New Conspirators: Seed Share–Emerging Women

31 10 2007

God, the Mother

This month’s Seed Sampler is about the Mosaic stream of renewal, multicultural church plants that actively strive for ethnic diversity and reconciliation. One of the main themes of this stream is inclusivity, being welcoming to and affirming of people different from ourselves.

As an extension of that theme of inclusivity, we include this article on gender in the greater emerging church. Just as people of different races and cultures should gather together and seek understanding, so should men and women. You might be asking yourself, “Isn’t the church done with that? Haven’t women found equality in the church?” In come cases, yes, but as you will read in this article, in more cases, no.

This article is adapted from Julie Clawson’s personal blog, OneHandClapping. She is also an administrator and regular contributor to the Emerging Women blog.
