A new month means a new conversation here on the Missio Alliance blog. And July will focus on an important and timely topic: Gender and the Kingdom of God.
To introduce this month’s theme, here is a recent lecture by our own contributing writer Karina Kreminski at Morling College:
An Invitation for Submissions
In global and local contexts it is evident that enmity, confusion, and fear continue to mark the way women and men understand and relate to one another. What hope can we offer our world here in terms of presenting a perspective on gender that flows straight from the values and the paradigm of the kingdom of God? What does it mean to be male and female as those who bear God’s image or under the Lordship of Christ? What does it look like for relationships to thrive between men and women within and outside the church? These are issues that have been not handled very well by the church in the past; what can we do to make up for it now? What does it mean and look like for the church to navigate this issue as both a contrast community and an incarnational witness in mission?
If you would like to submit a post for the Missio Alliance blog that addresses these issues, please contact us!
