The debate rages about the role of women in today's culture, from Amy Chua's "Tiger Mom" to Sheryl Sandberg's motherhood advice as COO at Facebook. What's a woman to conclude about her identity, her purpose, and her role? Make sure you don't miss this opportunity to discover what God has to say about the other half of the image of God in the human race.
Wild Game, Disguises, and A Father's Blessing (Genesis 27)
What's up in a family when the dad eats with his sons but not with his wife, especially when he is old and blind? Where moms purpose becomes to take advantage of her husbands old age, where the younger brother lies and blasphemes God, and where his older brother gets so angry at the end of the day he threatens murder? Not exactly a Hallmark™ movie.
The Bachelorette-Patriarch Style (Genesis 24)
From the Bachelor and the Bachelorette to online dating services, how to find a marriage partner has become big business. When it comes to finding a future husband or wife, does the God of the Universe care? Two old men, a forty-year-old bachelor, and the need for a good wife -how did the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob work behind the scenes as the ultimate Matchmaker?
Sarah (Cont) - Catfights and God's Promise (Genesis 16-21)
President Obama is in his second term and like every American President since 1948, it's time to try and settle the thorniest diplomatic problem on earth—Israel vs the Palestinians. What makes this problem so intractable is that it's a fight between brothers, and it all started with a woman with an ingenious plan.
Sarah—The Mother Who Beat Menopause (Genesis 11-16)
The struggle with infertility. It can be one of the biggest battles a husband and wife face. Believers need to care for each other in these battles and we also need to know God's redemptive story from Genesis to Revelation. Barrenness -it's one of the major themes in God's story. It tested Sarah and Abraham almost their entire lives.
Eve -The Mother of Us All (Cont)
She's the mother of us all but she is often viewed as a villain -the woman who fell to temptation and plunged the entire human race into sin and death. Is biblical faith really chauvinistic and down on the female side of the human race?
Eve -The Mother of Us All (Genesis 1-3)
What's a woman to do in today's culture? Should she try and prove that Wonder Woman is just as strong as Super Man? Should she dress all her Barbies in combat fatigues or should she head down to her handy plastic surgeon and get the latest look of eternal youth so her daughter's high school friends mistake her for an older sister and not mom? You're only going to get one shot at being a woman. What will you decide about your identity, your purpose, and your role?
