Women on the Outside

Jan 04 2015 • Abe Johnson, Brianna Millett, Greg Boyd

It’s notable that throughout his ministry, Jesus consistently interacted with and cared for people who were outsiders in the cultural and religious structures of his time. Many of those people were women and while our modern society has progressed in some ways, we’re still called to confront injustice and intentionally build bridges with “outsiders” in our world.Join us for our new series, Women on the Outside, which runs from January 3 – February 1.

"I've been a WH podrishioner for several years now and I can't tell you how much it has changed my life. I came across these podcasts at a time when I was in an extremely unhealthy/abusive situation, and these teachings were immensely influential to me maintaining my faith and sanity. THANK YOU for showing me what a Jesus-looking God is like and what it means to follow Him. Many, many blessings to all of you!"
