The Anglican Women’s Studies Centre regularly publishes a newsletter, and in June of this year, Bridie Boyd authored a thought-provoking article on the way we see (and do) male-female partnership.
Gender Equality is a social justice issue, with many campaigns, sermons, and policies. Bridie’s article brings it down to the personal - how is my parish, council, vestry, or roster reflecting fair treatment and participation of men and women?
It ends with an alternative version of the Lord’s Prayer, mindful of the language we use to talk of God.
Thanks to the Anglican Women’s Studies Centre for their ongoing work to promote these topics. Download the full June newsletter here.
