I know I’ve been a bit MIA from the blog, but as I’ve been hearing from many of you, you’re enjoying the “Found Wanting” guest series. I’m so grateful for those who have written already, and as of now, I have posts to take us through mid-August. I will continue soliciting submissions, so it’s not too late! Ideally, the series will run indefinitely.
But where am I actually writing these days? The truth is, I’m writing A LOT. It just hasn’t been around here. I’m going to try and do a better job of keeping my blog readers up-to-date in terms of where to find me. (There are quite a few essays in the pipeline.) Of course you can always follow me on Twitter. There, you are pretty much guaranteed to be inundated with what I write and think. But if you don’t want to join the Twitterverse (and I wouldn’t blame you), you won’t have to. Just keep checking in here. (You can subscribe to posts by email.)
This week, I’m at The Gospel Coalition:
First, there’s a wonderful essay written by Bethany Jenkins called “Women, Work and Faith: Five Common Themes.” Bethany is hosting a dinner at which I’ll be speaking at The Gospel Coalition Conference for Women. At the bottom of her piece, you can find the fun little ad for my first book signing!
Yesterday, TGC featured an interview with me for their Vocations Column. I talk about the “burden, boundary and blessing of calling.” Check it out!
And today, they’re running a piece that is really important to me called, “#YESALLWOMEN.”
“Following in the example of Jesus who identified with suffering humanity, godly men might reveal God’s concern for justice by collecively weeping and crying out over female suffering, whether being gang raped on a bus in India, or giving birth with shackled legs, or being murdered on a college campus. What if they suffered with these women, as if their harm had been done their own? Despite its faults, the impulse behind #yesallwomen seeks solidarity and empathy with the too-frequent terror of female powerlessness. To its credit, #yesallwomen calls each of us to say of injustice, This cannot be.
Don’t the people of God know this agony best of all?”
I hope you’ll pop over there and read the rest.
