July 20 Gathering: Gender Roles–Enslaved or Empowered?


Do our perceptions of gender trap us in rigid boxes, or do they empower us to be more fully human?

This week (July 20), we’ll discuss biblical concepts of gender, misconceptions, and more empowering ways of viewing our unique contributions to the human project. We’ll look at some of the passages that have been traditionally used to create false dichotomies in gender with an eye to some of the contextual situations from which they arise.

We’ll also take a close look at the story of Jesus and the woman caught in adultery found in John 7:53-8:11. One often-overlooked aspect of this narrative is how Jesus confronts gender discrimination head-on in an unexpected and radical way.

Come and join us for a meal, a beverage, and authentic conversation!

Happy Half-Hour: 6:30pm
Conversation Begins: 7:00pm
