Whether we’re singing lullabies to babies (as I did last night to my six-day-old grandson) or protesting sexual exploitation (as I did recently at a forum on human trafficking), our voices matter.

The only thing more moving than hearing women cheer each other on is hearing a man cheer us on. Thank you, Jim, for recognizing Jesus’ revolutionary love for women, for honoring women’s stories, and for encouraging us to offer our full selves in service to God’s healing, restoring, redemptive work in this world.
