A number of our bloggers have been focusing on injustices in the church and the world.    

In Dirty Sexy Ministry, Laurie places before us an image from the Jackson, Mississippi Woolworth’s lunch counter in 1963 and asks us whether we could persist and could pray in the face of such an evil assault?

Now this post might sound a bit frivolous a first, in contrast to the first one. And I will admit it; my iPhone is basically a bodily appendage.  But Kristin of Liberation Theology Lutheran invites us to ponder whether we can resist elements of modern culture – our consumerist, 24-hour workplace culture – and whether they pull us away from those things which most matter.  The startling moment comes when she quotes someone else: Is your smartphone’s face the one you most see? 

Teri, who blogs at Seeking Authentic Voice, frequently issues strong and persistent calls on behalf of the voices and experiences of women and the language used to describe us, God, and the church.  Here she tells us about an upcoming Episcopal Women’s Caucus event, Women Rising.  And Amy, another powerful voice for women in life and in the church, writes about the same event here.

In the same vein, Lee ponders the authority of women, in the blogosphere and elsewhere, in her Notes.

And finally, in God Goes Pop Culture, Michelle has written a pastors’ version of The Handmaid’s Tale.  It is unlikely to make you comfortable.
