Hello, happy Virtual Greet & Tweet from McKinney!
I wish all would live stream!
Hey y’all, this is an organization I mentioned being involved with last night. Their mission is to bring awareness, transparency, and accountability to churches with actively enforced policies about women in leadership and LGBTQ+ participation, and to encourage churches without formal policies to develop and publicize them. https://www.facebook.com/churchclarity/

I know you mentioned an organization also Jann Aldredge-Clanton, what was it called again?
I hope you all will join us next week for #WomanistWednesdays!
Our guest, Dr. Mitzi J. Smith and it will be all about her new book, "Womanist Sass & Talk Back: Social (In)Justice, Intersectionality and Biblical Interpretation" --- you REALLY do not want to miss this!
I hope you can tune in for this. It WILL be a MUST SEE!

TOMORROW: 4/11 @ 7p CST on FBLive
Our #WomanistWednesdays welcomes Dr. Melva Sampson, creator and curator of Pink Robe Chronicles! Check out her page and broadcasts. Then grab your beverage of choice and settle in before your computer to join in what will most certainly be a FABULOUS conversation.

"Fifty years later, much of what King died fighting against in Memphis still remains — sometimes in nuanced iterations and other times in plain sight. Racism is still institutionalized. Workers are still being exploited. Government continues to both push against the will of the majority of its citizens and also aggressively usurp, minimize, or erase the contributions of grassroots leadership and organizations. From an economic justice standpoint, advances in Memphis, especially for black people, over the past 50 years have been abysmal."
Hello. My name is Donald Guffey. I'm 29 years old and an Ordained Assemblies of God Minister. I have listened to several of Dr. Sessions sermons and am being taught some womanist theology at my seminary and I absolutely love it. My Question to the leadership of The Gathering is this. How can I as a White male minister who believes in the message you are preaching preach in such a way that is consistent and supportive of the womanist message? I look forward to your guidance on this . Blessings to you my Sisters in Christ.

The Gathering is a Womanist Church of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Where All are Welcome. Really!

My quest to find the word ‘homosexual’ in the Bible 03/11/2021

My quest to find the word ‘homosexual’ in the Bible

A Repost from Dr. Maisha Kariamu Handy:

Critical study matters! #discipline When we know better we have to do better. Grateful for this article which also notes the reality that white hetero men are at the biblical interpretation tables and make these decisions...not God! H/t Dr. Pamela Lightsey for posting. For those wanting to cut to the chase...

"The answer was found in an exchange of letters between a seminary student and Weigle. This seminary student challenged the usage of the word “homosexual” in 1 Corinthians 6:9 and provided a detailed outline of his reasoning. Weigle responded and admitted that the translation team had indeed made a mistake and would seek to correct it in their next update.
However, Weigle had just signed a contract stating that he would not make any changes in the RSV for 10 years. During those 10 years, translation teams were working on the translations of the first New American Standard Bible, The Living Bible and New International Version Bible.
A subcommittee of the RSV translation team voting on one of many decisions required to create a new English translation of the Bible.
We then went to research in the translation notes of the NASB, TLB and NIV Bibles. It turns out these versions used the RSV as their basis for including the word “homosexual” in their translations, not knowing that the RSV had retracted its decision.
The RSV committee decided the word “homosexual” was an inaccurate translation of malakoi and arsenokoitai in 1 Corinthians 6:9 and replaced it with “sexual perverts.” An example of “sexual perverts” would be a dirty old man exposing himself to children on a playground. The RSV team admitted that the Greek word arsenokoitai was not condemning homosexuals, but instead those who were abusive in their pursuit of sexual encounters."

My quest to find the word ‘homosexual’ in the Bible I was born and raised in a Southern Baptist church by two incredibly amazing parents who dearly love the Lord. It was a great experience. I remember Sunday school and Training Union, contributing to Lottie Moon and Annie Armstrong for foreign and home missions, and many other traditions that still b
