Some of you are wondering if I’m the same Mike Phillips that used to post at both theopengates.com and natomaschurch.wordpress.com.
I owned both of those sites and this one, as well as my business site mikephillipsministry.com. I have decided to move in a different direction and I’m consolidating all the blogs to this one.
This blog will continue to promote the following three concepts:
1. The dangers of Patriarchy and the exciting possibilities as we enter a new era of gender cooperation.
2. Concepts related to counseling and protecting victims of abuse
3. The beauty of God’s image stamped in each person, and what that implies regarding violence and pacifism.
I believe these three concepts have not been given enough notice in today’s church. Oh yes, there have been crusaders for all three–valiant people all–who have toiled away among God’s family, telling us about these things happening. But now is the day when prophetic and justice-minded people are standing up in the center of churches to say “Listen Carefully”.
Thus, this blog.
