I’ve been thinking about masculinity and femininity lately, how they relate and don’t relate to personhood, how they relate and don’t relate to sexuality, and wondering why in Christian circles there seems to be a sharp upswing in the need to prescribe and define more strict gender roles than I am comfortable with.
I’m wondering how Lent and symbols and other “high church” things can prove helpful in a real pursuit of God without the trappings of ritualism.
I’m thinking about India.
And I’m marveling at how quickly culture spreads; in particular, how quickly a daughter who has never really cared for the computer or e-mail becomes fluent in txt speak. (knO wot i mean? way kewl stuff)
