I’m not talking about that beloved hour glass figure…
I’m talking about how a woman’s identity is informed by other characteristics:
I am all about women. And I want to embrace and encourage women to be their best selves.
But I do not want to ignore the differences among women. And I don’t want to assume the white norm.
I want to acknowledge and celebrate black women, brown women, white women, red women, and yellow women.
I want to acknowledge and challenges that these categories are also only so useful (even my daughter is quick to be left out as mixed).
I want to acknowledge and encourage women, regardless of where the decimal is in their bank account (of whether or not they have a bank out!).
I want to acknowledge and connect with women who believe differently than I do. I do not believe I am called to only influence other Christians.
I want to acknowledge and respect women across the sexuality spectrum. I am not interested in bringing any bias to my services.
So WooHoo to women.
