Human rights are violated in our country and around the world. Our resistance to injustice is stronger when we rise up together. In our faith communities and other groups, let us all […] The post “We Will All Resist” appeared first on Jann Aldredge-Clanton ..read more

Many churches still exclude women from pastoral leadership. Large denominations, such as Southern Baptist and Roman Catholic, still won’t ordain women to ministry. How can this be when the Bible tells us that our “sons and daughters shall prophesy” (Acts 2:17), and that women were the first to receive revelations from Jesus and to preach […] The post “Come and See a Revelation,” sung by DeShay Freemyer-Jackson, Minister of Worship Arts at The Gathering, A Womanist Church appeared first on Jann Aldredge-Clanton ..read more

The question often raised when I’m leading discussions on expanding divine names and images is “You do believe Jesus is male, don’t you?” At first I tried to give detailed theological explanations, but later simply replied, “I believe Jesus was male, but Jesus is not male, because I believe in the resurrection.” The image of […] The post “Christ-Sophia Lives Today” appeared first on Jann Aldredge-Clanton ..read more
