Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
Feminist and womanist theology has reoriented an entire way of understanding our relationships to one another, to creation, and to God. Feminist social theory has reshaped education, psychotherapy, leadership, decision-making, collaborative work, and family life. Little has been done, however, to bring these fields together to enrich the theory, theology, and practice of ministry. This book brings together the best in feminist and womanist scholarship that deals with the work of ministry in a one-volume format. It offers the most relevant, effective, and transformative approaches to ministry as it develops a feminist and womanist practical theology.
