Re-Imagining

April 20, 2017

By: Sallie Bingham

Christ is made the sure foundation,
Christ the head and corner stone…

Reimagining the way the Christian Church in all its forms might benefit women, or at least welcome us and allow us to feel comfortable in its formidable edifices, raises, inevitably, the issue of language, as I was reminded by Buck Duke’s bronze plaque on the side of the Duke “chapel”—impressive as a cathedral—honoring the master stone mason who made those walls.

“Do I look like I need a friggin seat?? I hissed at her..”I just came from a serious workout at the friggin gym!!”
