If you read the Emmaus Road conversation carefully in Luke 24, you will notice that part of the story the disciples told Jesus was that “the women of our group astounded us” with news of the Resurrection on that first Easter morning. Ruth unpacks the countercultural approach Jesus took to the role of women and men in Jesus’ life and ministry. Ruth and Steve speak candidly about how discrimination on the basis of gender happens even in settings that affirm the equality of men and women. They also acknowledge the sparks that can be present when women and men are together and Ruth highlights how the person we are is what helps us navigate sexual dynamics safely—not whether or not we choose to be in a car or a meeting alone with a person of the other gender! A great conversation that offers a healthy vision of men and woman in partnership—in life and ministry.
