If Ronnie and I were still living in Fairfield, Texas (the small town where we spent the first five years of our marriage and ministered throughout my time in seminary), I would definitely be making the trip down to Houston to attend the Houston chapter conference of Christians for Biblical Equality, to be held April 27-28, at Heights Church of Christ, 1548 Heights Blvd, Houston, Texas. I really like their conference theme this year: "A New Creation, A New Tradition: Reclaiming the Biblical Tradition of Man and Woman, One in Christ." And, I love that Dr. Todd Still, one of my favorite professors from Truett Seminary, will be one of their guest speakers. They're even going to include personal stories of women's and men's journey to biblical equality, which you can submit online here. How cool is that?
If you are in Texas or the surrounding area, consider attending this conference to fellowship with other men and women who are taking a stand for male and female complementarity and equality in Texas. Check out the schedule for the conference here and you can register online here. Or, if you can't attend this year, maybe consider making a financial contribution to CBE.
P.S. They're also doing a Prayer Walk for Women on March 28 that you can join, whether by hooking up with other CBE members in Houston, walking with friends in your own neighborhood, or simply praying on your own. Check out the details for that event here.
