A Question for the Church



“Where will Christian feminists go for spiritual nourishment if the church itself fails to reflect the feminism of Jesus? If tradition becomes a reason for churches, for synagogues, for mosques to refuse to change in the light of new insights and understandings, on what grounds can we expect change from other institutions?”

~Joan D. Chittister, Heart of Flesh: A Feminist Spirituality for Women and Men
