We Need Women in All Kind of Places

I have been checking on an old-time friend of mine to see what she’s been up to – yes googling her! I found these great videos  (and here  – takes about 15 minutes to watch them both).

Sometimes, we are misLynn Smithunderstood in what we mean when we say “we want to empower women.”

Here some very good thoughts are voiced as to what it means, when I say it.

Women are empowered when they can use their gifts for the greater good in God’s world. We need women and their gifts in all segments of life – science, education, politics, at home and in the church. We need them to work together in partnership with men who understand Jesus’ concept of leadership as explained for instance in Mark 10:35-45. The kind of leadership that Jesus modelled is NOT that top down domineering kind, but the nurturing co-operating care for the other and service.
