FMBC “Jesus Feminist” by Sarah Bessey

How do you reconcile with your feminist sisters at church?  How do you reconcile your faith with your own feminism? What would Jesus do? And how do we receive and give His love to one another?

“Let’s do this. Let’s…lay down our crafted arguments. I want to talk about this – really talk about womanhood, church, the labels and where we go from here. Because the vicious arguments…and the silencing aren’t working.  We are wounded and we are wounding.

Here luv. I want to wrap us up in the warmth of good stories, of strong love. Someday…we’ll stand before the piles of stones that used to be weapons and we’ll build an altar…and then we’ll dance around those old arguments together, laughing.”

– Jesus Feminist

Join three LDS sisters in different faith transitions discuss with Sarah Bessey, her book “Jesus Feminist” and the one thing they all have in common; their love for the Savior, Jesus.
