Dear Folks -
I called the "life talk" I offered in Ordinary Life this week "Gynecological Theology." I based it on one of the healing stories about Jesus where a woman with a vaginal hemorrhage was healed of her illness by touching the robe of Jesus. It is a well known story but seldom used as the basis of a talk.
I used it to reflect on how in both the inner and outer worlds we are "not well" because we have difficulty embracing and being embraced by what I call "the healthy feminine." Joan Chittister's influence on my thinking is apparent throughout the talk.
