Bible stories that do not seem to empower women might benefit from

  1. removing layers of biased interpretations (Samaritan woman, John 4)

  2. being seen through the lens of liberation (Syrophoenician woman, Mark 7)

  3. being put into conversation with other texts that empower women (Luke 8:1-3 and many others)

  4. being used as discussion starters in which women are listened to (Dinah, Gen 34)

  5. being passed over in silence until we get a better handle on them (Bathsheba, 2 Sam 11-12).

On this podcast, Steph Williams O'Brien and Jo Saxton discuss leadership issues such as burnout, breakthrough, and self-leadership. Check out this one on True Empowerment!
