Penny in the Air: My Story of Becoming Affirming

In my e-newsletter Field Notes, we have an “Ask Sarah” section where people can send in their questions to me and I try to answer them in future editions. Usually those questions are pretty simple and straightforward (i.e. what’s your favourite episode of Doctor Who?) but not always. The question that inspired this essay is one that I have been asked probably a hundred times in a hundred ways...

More of Sarah's books…
“I want to be outside with the misfits, with the rebels, the dreamers, second-chance givers, the radical grace lavishers, the ones with arms wide open, the courageously vulnerable, and among even—or maybe especially—the ones rejected by the Table as not worthy enough or right enough.”
Sarah Bessey, Jesus Feminist: An Invitation to Revisit the Bible's View of Women

“Rest in your God-breathed worth. Stop holding your breath, hiding your gifts, ducking your head, dulling your roar, distracting your soul, stilling your hands, quieting your voice, and satiating your hunger with the lesser things of this world.”
Sarah Bessey, Jesus Feminist: An Invitation to Revisit the Bible's View of Women

“I won't desecrate beauty with cynicism anymore. I won't confuse critical thinking with a critical spirit, and I will practice, painfully, over and over, patience and peace until my gentle answers turn away even my own wrath. I will breathe fresh air while I learn, all over again, grace freely given and wisdom honored; and when my fingers fumble, whenI sound flat or sharp, I will simply try again.”
Sarah Bessey, Jesus Feminist: An Invitation to Revisit the Bible's View of Women
