yes yes yes – love the work of the people!
makes creating alternative and participatory worship meaningful …
Lovely to hear a woman’s perspective on contemplative spirituality. Though I tend to lean towards more active expressions of worship (social justice, and care giving), and have capacity for what she identifies as more masculine expressions I love that she’s speaking to the more emotionally engaging expressions that can be sadly forgotten.
I was caught by one comment, that I felt supported her perspective that western Christianity tends to be couched in a masculine world. She said, “Even though I am a woman, I’m also made in the image of God.” The qualifier of “even though” seems to give a nod to the social acceptability of down playing the role of women in the Christian world. I hope that soon we won’t subconsciously have to qualify femininity as an equal expression of the image of God.
Thanks for sharing the video.
