Podcasts 34 mins
Found in: Identity, Bible

In this episode we discuss how the Bible upholds the view that men and women have absolutely equal value and dignity, looking at how Jesus treated women and recognising the role that women played in his ministry and the growth of the early church. We also contrast Jesus' example of servant leadership with some of the power struggles in church and society today.

We suggest how we can push back against gender stereotypes and promote body positivity to value the diverse experinces, interests and skills of both genders.

We also discuss the genuine differences between women and men which mean that we aren't simply interchangeable, and look at how we can work in cooperation rather than competition with each other.
