Enjoyed Reading ‘Year of Biblical Womanhood’ by @RachelHeldEvans

I have really enjoyed reading this book over the past week (thanks Bryony for lending it to me) – had me chuckling and thinking at alternate moments, and occasionally reaching for the iPad to take note of a particular paragraph, as outlined here:

morning-prayer
Early morning prayer? How can I expect to have a civil conversation with God?
take-risks-first-rate
Be yourself. Take risks. Work Hard. Make mistakes. Keep Going. Surround with cheerleaders.
faith-certainty
Faith is believing in the midst of uncertainty. Don’t wait for certainty.
equality
Women should not have to pry equality…
fair-trade
Thinking about what we buy… and how it affects others… (one of the most impactful Lent things I did was give up purchasing in supermarkets & seeking to ‘shop local’ more – changes eating habits a lot!)
intent
Remember the historical context in which the Bible was written.
women-church
Church – an off-putting place for women?
the-bible
The Bible isn’t an answer book, set of rules of a self-help manual, but a sacred collection telling God’s story
bible-2
Do we find what we’re looking for?

Thanks Rachel – lots to chew on (as someone who came from a Brethren background!)!
