Created In God’s Image

Created In God’s ImageHello,

It finally happened this week, a woman fell to earth. Not that a woman fell out of a space shuttle or from the 20th floor of a tower block, this was television history. The first episode of the long awaited sci-fi series, where the 13th incarnation of Doctor Who was a woman, aired. Actress Jodie Whittaker showed she could wield a sonic screwdriver and fight aliens as well as any of her male predecessors. Yes, it is a big deal that a woman is finally playing the iconic Doctor, but the fact that social media and national newspapers have made it such a deal indicates that we are still a way off gender equality.

The Christian worldview is that humankind, both male and female, was created in God’s image Genesis 1:27 and in living as a Christian there is to be no male/female rivalry. Galatians 3:28 God loves all of humanity and treats men and women as equal. Just think what a difference it would make if our society did the same.

Have a good week celebrating the array of gifts and talents that both men and women have and can contribute to our shared life.
