First, Wash Her Feet

I think it is really poor form that none of you read “Girl, Wash Her Face” or her recent book but took it upon yourselves to critique her message. I have read it and agree with a lot of the materialism and curated imperfection comments. Those are easy observations to target just by looking at her Instagram. It would be more interesting and thoughtful to demonstrate curiosity at the appeal and why so many women of faith are being fed by this message. The culture women experience in faith communities largely asks them to apologize for being who they are and uses scripture to reinforce them to carry burdens that are not theirs to carry. The idea that women should be empowered by the gospel to take responsibility for their lives, have a strong and liberating concept of self and lead profitable lives is radical (still). Instead of leading with curiosity you demonstrated the same kind of shaming she is helping women get out of. I think it is interesting that I am defending her because I can’t follow her Instagram. Yet, I get her message and appreciate the core of her story...because I have read it and listened. You might consider washing her feet and the women who do connect with her message before assuming you have something to say.

Christ and culture

Thank you for engaging culture in a thoughtful and gracious way. And it’s great to get updated in some of the most recent news and journal material, Christian or otherwise.

Best Podcast Evah!

I love Mockingbird! I’ve been to two of the conferences and have read so much of their written material. These three (R.J. Sarah and David) are the Rock stars of Grace for me. They get it and they get me, a sinner. Life is messy and hard, Jesus is right there with us in it. I love it. So far, my favorite is 120. Powerful! Sarah is so passionate and raw, RJ lives in the solution (and sings!) and Dave brings it all together somehow. Thank you!
