The Longest Dawn

Next week, Dr. Kevin Giles will be at our Christians for Biblical Equality Houston Chapter meeting.  Dr Giles will be speaking on “The Biblical Case of Equality of Consideration.”

This paragraph is in the outline Kevin sent us: 

“In the late 19th century the first wave of feminism called these ideas into question but the time was not right for social change. In the late 60s the time was right. Large numbers of women were completing their education and the Pill was invented. With education and the ability to control their fertility women entered the work force in a way not known previously. For the first time in human history women could support themselves – they no longer needed to be dependent on a man.  Women’s emancipation had dawned.”

It is a cloudy dawn.  The Son is overridden by clouds. Sometimes there is a peek of light as it shines through, but mostly the dawn is dim for Christian women in churches.

We are trying to break through those clouds. Each one of you has a voice and a presence that is vital to this struggle. I encourage you to continue this fight.

I also encourage you to come hear Dr. Kevin Giles.  He is a well-known and respected fighter for women’s equality.  He lives in Australia and is here for a brief time speaking at the Houston Graduate School of Theology.  One of our CBE Houston members, Mabel, has met him and counts him as a friend.  He is a friend of Christians for Biblical Equality.

We are meeting November 3, 2012 at West Houston Chinese Church.  Begins at 10:00 a.m. and lasts through 12:30 p.m.

If you can’t be with us in person, please pray for a good attendance, and above all please pray for us as we seek to continue to work for women’s equality.
