Questions About Sexual Violence

his week my friend and colleague Kyndall Rathaus, who is a pastor at Lakeshore Baptist Church here in Waco, wrote an article for the Baptist Standard entitled "A Christian Feminist Response to Baylor."  The article has been part of my formation this week.  By that I mean it has caused me to stop and think and ask questions about my Jesus following in this particular area.  Sometimes discipleship means asking, "do i know everything I should know about this?" and "how might the Holy Spirit be challenging me to grow?"  So in response to this article I decided to interview another friend, our own Dr. Emma Wood who has a PhD in clinical psychology and specializes in questions about gender.  Instead of writing an article this week, I thought I'd share that interview with you. 

 

Summer Fun

Friendly reminder that this Sunday is the beginning of summer Sunday School.  Even if you didn't sign up for the breakfast potluck you can still come, please bring a savory or sweet dish to share. Also, this Tuesday will be our first MD Chains lunch.  We will be meeting by Fuego by Baylor.  

Meet Our Newest Pastoral Associate

This June marks the conclusion of our time with our first year of pastoral associates.  We couldn't have been more thrilled with the work Liz Andrasi and Luke Stehr did for us.  As we get ready to say goodbye to them we welcome two new pastoral associates.  We introduced Marshall last week and this week we'd like to introduce Kim.

Name: Kim Minnick Reason you are in Waco:  Working on my MDiv in Spiritual Formation at Truett Seminary Best restaurant in Waco: Bangkok Royal.  Scripture that means something to you: I tend to stress and get anxious over things I can't control - John 16:13 reminds me that the Spirit is constantly at work, which pairs nicely with Matthew's reminder in 6:25-34 to not worry.  TV Show?:   Currently caught up on Gilmore Girls and catching up on Parks and Rec. I'd like to watch Lost again.  Sunday nights are devoted to Game of Thrones.  Book?: Ender's Game and really the whole Enderverse  Something we’d never know about you: I was a percussionist in high school and received a "1" at UIL for a 4-mallet marimba solo. I hope to have my own marimba one day.

Survey Help

Friends, one of UBC's former employees and fearless warrior champions, Katie Lauve Moon (pictured below), is doing PhD work at Tulane.  As part of her research she is asking that people from our community take this survey.  I will include this survey 3 times over the next 6 weeks.  So if you are annoyed, you can help make it disappear by participating now.
