There is a picture I once had of a small chapel, much like the one above, except that the angle was different. In the foreground, there was a yellow caution sign that read, “Slow Church”. It seems to embody so much of my experience as a female in a predominantly white male oriented church culture. They are slow to see their own bias and the harm that comes from silencing the voices of women and minorities.

I grew up in Brazil in the 60’s and early 70’s, Portugal in the mid to late 70's. I love sharing about that time in my life and how it shaped my worldview.
