A Call for Articles on ‘Resolving Conflicts’

Mutuality is now accepting articles (and discussion surrounding the issue) for the Summer 2008 issue on ‘Resolving Conflicts.’

Topic ideas include, but are not limited to:

  • How convictions about biblical equality and gender justice apply to resolving conflict
  • Biblical alternatives to ‘the tie-breaking-vote’ model of conflict resolution by female submission to male headship
  • The importance of prayer for resolving conflict
  • Whether there is a ‘middle way’ between egalitarianism and male headship
  • Appropriate and inappropriate anger
  • Biblical reflections: examples of how Jesus handled conflict, Jacob and Esau’s reconciliation, rivalry between Sarah and Hagar, etc.
  • Examples of Christians who are/were reconcilers as well as examples of Christians who refuse(d) to compromise on truth
  • Practical tips and reflections on race and gender reconciliation in Christ

Please send specific ideas or proposals to mgreulich@cbeinternational.org.

    I thought egalitarianism was the ‘middle way’ between male headship and female headship…

    See comment 76032.

    You are so right. Either you’ve got one person or the other person as the designated leader, or you’ve got cooperation, partnership, and people who are striving for true relationship with one another.

    Nicely put.

    Agreed, Ruud. What would be the middle way between egalitarianism and male headship? Husbands having authority over their wives every other month? Egalitarians shouldn’t compromise on equality.
