The Imported Christ vs The Real Jesus of Cuba

Dark & Lovely: Is God In It? A Reflection on the 2018 Pittsburgh Theological Seminary Schaff Lectures on Race, Gender and the Imago Dei

"The Shunamite woman stands in the canon and reminds us of both the age-old struggle to suppress Black women and other women of color and the righteous resistance such women must put forth: dark am I, and lovely. Our blackness is not an apology. It is a declaration that we are made in God's image." -Rev. Tega Swann

A Clergy Woman Of Color Too Series: Cries From Kenya

"When a man clergy sleeps with women in the church and steals money from the church coffers, he’s transferred and the issue is covered. But when a woman clergy raises her voice over justice issues, she’s negatively labeled and ostracized in ministry. And the punishment for such women clergy is heavy. " -The Very Rev. Muture

Allied Partnership Blog: Time’s Up on Church Silence About Sexual Violence

"But I’ve been served communion many times by men whose wives came to church with black eyes. As a teenager, I heard several pre-communion devotions from young men who harassed, coerced, and assaulted girls in the congregation. At least one girl told of being groped and forcibly kissed at church, but nothing was done. The perpetrator was later asked to speak during Sunday morning services again and again while that girl, no girl or woman ever was." -Dr. Tara M. Tuttle

When Answering The Call Means Leaving

"They tried to get me to fit into constrictive, gendered box, rife with limitations, but failed to understand that because I know I bear the reflection of Divinity, I reject the lie that my womanhood makes me ill-equipped to do anything." -Alicia Crosby
