My apologies for posting this so late in the day. Here are my favorites from the week of synchroblogging inspired by the week of mutuality.
1. First, kudos to Rachel Held Evans for her outstanding work. She will be continuing to post over the weekend, so be sure to check out what else she has in store (including her own highlights of the best). Her series has been fantastic. Here are the posts, in order of appearance:
- Let’s Start at the Beginning, Shall We?
- 4 Common Misconceptions about Egalitarianism
- Submission in Context: Christ and the Greco-Roman Household Codes
- Dan on Roles, Leadership, and Supporting Your Partner
- Who’s Who Among Biblical Women Leaders
- N.T. Wright: 5 Minutes on Women in the Church
- For the sake of the gospel, let women speak
- Ask an Egalitarian…(Response)
- Is patriarchy really God’s dream for the world?
2. Christian Marriage: Fail? Pam Hogeweide is one of my favorite bloggers. In her post My Failed Christian Marriage, she talks about the struggle to fit the ideal for Christian marriage and the joy in finding freedom from those restraints.
3. Fabulosity on Alise Wright’s blog. Another blogger I just can’t get enough of. First, Alise catches our attention by reminding us that You Don’t Have to Take Your Clothes Off to Be Egalitarian. Then, she has the always wonderful Sarah Moon share her thoughts on Too Much in a fantastic guest post. If you don’t read anything else, read these posts!
4. A couple of men weigh in. I always like the way Travis Mamone shares his heart. This post is a good way to introduce some deeper theological constructs without getting bogged down with terminology; it’s nicely put. Through the trending topic #mutuality2012 on Twitter, I discovered Jonathan Aigner’s post sorry, little girl: a patriarchal response. Great thoughts on the deficiency of the female gender and faithfully following God’s gifts in our own lives without causing guilt in others.
5. The Best of the Rest. I could go on and on, listing everything I like and why. Instead, I will simply list the several other posts that I found meaningful. Even though we’re all writing on the same thing, each person has a unique voice, an interesting perspective. What an amazing week it’s been!
- Sarah Bessey, In which you are loved and you are free
- Jennifer Luitwieler, Women Preach and Men do VBS
- word of a woman, When Did I Become Such A Dangerous Woman?
