“You aren’t just supposed to be sexually pure, but you are supposed to be pure in your gender expression. So women and girls are expected to be hyper-feminine, supportive followers of men and boys who are expected to be hyper-masculine leaders, supportive and loving leaders, but leaders nonetheless.”
She covers a number of additional issues in greater depth in the FreshAir show discussing some interesting observations on how her church handled gender and sexuality. Interesting listen.
Linda also has a product called “Break Free Together” which includes:
- The Talk: an interactive dinner experience
- Share your Story: where individuals share their stories in social media
- A Gathering: of individuals and experts in healing sexual shame
An interesting model many of us could adapt for our own practices and ministries.
