Something of a stretch, at best. … [Read more...]

When Church Hurts: Part 3

worshipteam

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church Hurts One day I received a call from the new pastor at another church in the same town. They were looking for a person to direct the choir and lead some worship teams. I ended up resigning from my position at the Bible college to work for this church. I made it clear that I would come and lead their music ministry, but I was not interested in leaving my church.  They accepted my position and I was there for almost two years.  During that time I discovered that they were a very divisive congregation who spent a great deal of time expressing what they were against – whether it had to do with music or youth ministry or the way the pla … [Read more...]

by Suzanne TitkemeyerThis Monday and Tuesday on the Dr. Phil show there was featured a man (Kirby ) that is a Fundamentalist Christian Patriarch type who'd spanked his wife Renee with a paddle for not calling him "Sir".

Quoting Quiverfull: Backpedaling Furiously From Vision Forum?

Crossing the line in the sand to build insane sand castles

Quoted from Jennifer McBride's blog Noble Womanhood - The Truth, The Whole Truth and Nothing But The Truth: A Follow Up Response to Michael FarrisI know the news of HSLDA distancing its self from patriarchy is old news at this point, but this is one of the few blogs I've seen in the Quiverfull/Evangelical/Patriarchy sphere that has spoken out against Farris. Jennifer is quoting Michael Farris of HSLDA from his statement distancing HSLDA from patriarchy and Vision Forum. I would recommend reading her entire posting as she seems to be very bent out of shape that Farris dared to deviate from the Vision Forum stance on the place of women. Wonder how many 'True Christians'(tm) are cancelling … [Read more...]

bridezillas

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideDebi moves on to Priestly/Steady/Servant women."My daughter who wrote the Teacher's Guide for this book is a Servant, similar to a Priest type.  From the time she was a small child, she "mothered" her little sister.  She always enjoyed caring for the elderly.  She was a wonderful young daughter, helping me do anything around the house."That sounds like a miserable childhood, actually.  The daughter, who she never bothers to name in the chapter, is her second daughter Shiloh."She is a peacemaker, kind, and considerate." People never cease to amaze me.  Sometimes the apple falls far away from the tree. … [Read more...]
