Paul, a First Century Feminist

by Rev. Dr. Jeffrey Frantz

Matthew Fox writes extensively about the need to balance the Sacred Masculine with the Feminine Divine, often citing Hilldegard of Bingen, among other mystics, as references. See, for example, The Goddess as Gaia and Our Mother and Healthy Masculinity Welcoming the Return of the Divine Feminine.

Rev. Dr. Cameron Trimble, reflecting on how our words/language create our realities, encourages us to Say What You Mean.
