The BEST of the Parker J Cole Show — Breaking the Glass Steeple with Jory Micah

Parker J Cole Banner

***REBROADCAST****

Several months ago, I started following a blog by a woman named Jory Micah. I wasn’t sure what to expect as I was led there by a guest blogger who talked about the problem with the evangelical purity movement in the church. Since I started following Jory’s blog, my brain has been opened to new ideas and concepts about a woman’s place in the body of Christ.

Some may view her blog a Christian feminist blog and that usually gives the idea of women burning their bras and running out in the street bare-chested in the name of equality. Yet, the more I followed her blog, I started to have my ideas of about where women stood in the body of Christ challenged. At the very least, she made me rethink some of my preconceptions about gender roles as I’ve been taught from knee high to adulthood.

Jory is one of the many people working to break the glass steeple in the Church — or rather, fight for gender equality. Join me for a fascinating discussion on this important topic. Perhaps you’ll have the same mind blowing thoughts I had as I read through hers and her other guest discourses about equality among the body of Christ.

The Parker J Cole Show — Empowering Women in the Midst of Illness with Elizabeth Chalker

Parker J Cole BannerElizabeth Chalker is no stranger to illness. She has been suffering from a debilitating disease for years. From being on the fast track in life and success to dealing with chronic pain and fatigue every day, no one would be more surprised to hear bitterness and resentment from her lips.

However, even in the midst of illness Elizabeth continues to empower women with her story. I called her book, ‘Hanging on by the Scratch Marks my Nails Left Behind’ a book that is open heart surgery for the soul. When pain wracks your body and no one seems to get it. When the doctors can’t figure out what to do, and medicine gives no ease, how can you be empowered?

On this episode of the Parker J Cole show, Elizabeth will tell you how to be empowered in the midst of illness. Join me for a discussion of joy in the midst of pain and contentment in the middle of adversity. You can call in at 646-668-8485, press 1 to be live on air.

The Parker J Cole Show — Empowering Women Through Biblical Studies

Parker J Cole Banner

Join me for the month of March as we discuss women’s empowerment in various aspects of life as we celebrate Women’s History Month.

The area of where women place in the body of Christ is a hot topic among today’s evangelical Church. Whether women should lead in pastoral duties or remain silent under a patriarchal system of church authority there are all kinds of debates going. No matter where your opinion stands on this issue, biblical studies empowers women to learn about God for themselves as they seek to understand the Creator of both sexes.

Another reason why biblical study is important is because of the biblical illiteracy rampant in today’s society. There are Christians who have NEVER picked up a Bible or even tried to do an in-depth study on it. Perhaps if more are encouraged to take up biblical studies we can effectively retrain those of the Church to get back to biblical principles.

With me to discuss this is returning guest Lisa Guinther, a biblical scholar with a passion for educating women in biblical studies.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Girl Power with Brittany Bates

There’s nothing quite like hating yourself. When every time you look in the mirror, you hate the face that stares back at you.

Or, what about standing next to the ‘pretty’ girl with all the looks, glamour, popularity, and everything else that we want while we’re in the background of her light?

I’ve been in this position more than once throughout my childhood. The fat girl next to my skinny friends, the ugly one who has to be funny by poking jokes at myself. I’ve been there and so have many other women.

It doesn’t help that the media defines beauty a certain way and Photoshop’s the covers of magazine, music videos, and other medium to project an image of perfection no one can attain and yet, we constantly try.

Join me on this episode of Write Stuff as I chat with author Brittany Bates with her devotional Encouragement by B. She leads us through 31 days of healing, encouragement, and restoration and gives us what ‘Girl Power’ really means.
