    In all the current social justice writings, I am trying to find something I have not yet been able to find: current books, articles, blogs, whatever which offer current Christian social justice perspectives on prisons in the United States. I’d like to find this because I am involved with something unusual, assisting a Shakespeare performance group in a Kentucky medium security prison.

    Re: The Feminine Side of God
    Go to the source. Jesus called God “Abba.”
    Are you saying Jesus is wrong?

      Not at all. Just that the rest of the Bible that speaks of God’s womb, and God nursing, and God protecting like a mother is right as well. We – male and female – are made in God’s image so it would be wrong to deny the scriptures and say that God does not image both male and female aspects.
