FTC.co asks Trillia Newbell, Director of Community Outreach at the ERLC, "What keeps younger and older women divided in the church?"
What joy and goodness wait for the church when women are encouraged to sprint full-force into the playground where they can use their gifts in any and every way possible.
Worthy caused me to be thankful for pastors, brothers, bosses, coworkers, friends, mentors, family members, and those who champion me on social media who I barely know! God is at work within His church.
These were ordinary women. Much like us, they probably didn’t feel like they had particularly extraordinary lives.
The ministries in which women participated are among the markers of genuine Christianity in a community and these ministries led to the growth of the early church.
We’ve bought into the same worldview of the larger culture, which is that women—and all people, really—are objects for our consumption.

We do not want to avoid equipping women just because it can be hard.
Eventually, if we actually believe what we believe, obedience will be the tell-tale sign that follows us.
Our goals as Christian women should and will look different the more we behold Christ and, in desperation, throw everything aside and root ourselves in him. Only then can we be immovable, unshakable, laughing at the days to come.
