Yesterday was supposed to be the final day of FemFest, but as usual, I’m a little late to the party. Oh well…I can live with it. One thing I’m learning…slowly but surely…is that if I’m going to make this blogging-thing work, I have to control it, and it cannot control me. The world will not implode without my measly little post being published…I get that…believe me, I *so* get that.
So, better late than never, here it is…
What surprised you this week? What did you take away from the discussion? What blog posts did you find particularly helpful? What questions do you still have?
One thing that surprised me is that there are so many tentative feminists like myself. So many who are completely sold out to the the idea of equality, as set forth and promoted by Jesus and the Bible, and yet still feel the need to ‘clarify’. (Yes, I realize some disagree with that very basic premise, that Jesus and the Bible set forth equality. That’s okay. I absolutely believe it to be true and will write here from the standpoint of it as a given.) I was encouraged that plenty of others, like myself, still cringe and pull away from the militancy of extremists…be they feminist extremists or christian extremists.
