Discerning Gentleness as a Feminist

Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.Philippians 4:5-7 (NIV) Recently, to get back to basics in 2019, my husband and I began reading the Bible together.

For those baptized as older children or adults, we find this moment something we go back to in the narrative of our lives. For me, I know it is a source of great joy and love.
