Reimagining the Text That Keeps Women Out of the Pulpit
Silent Not Me
If anything can raise temperatures and stir up rage in the church, it is a conversation about women’s roles. Specifically speaking, a heated debate about Paul’s words regarding women being silent in the church is sure to cause hurt, harm, discord and division. Regardless of which biblical translation you read, there is no way to deny the words written in 1 Corinthians 14:34. Paul’s words, written thousands of years ago, have long been used to perpetuate a patriarchal system that silences, stifles and suffocates women who sense God’s call for them to preach. What if there is another way to read and understand this highly controversial text?

Evolving: 20 Years of Preaching & Passionately Disrupting Patriarchy
On May 25, 2003, Sherri L. Brown Jackson, a Black woman entrenched in the Black Baptist tradition of the South, did the unthinkable. A once passionate defender of the inherited patriarchal views regarding women in ministry, she preached her first sermon. Twenty years later she is passionately disrupting patriarchal systems and practices that seek to silence women called to preach. Grounding her work in personal stories of trials and triumphs, she sets out to guide women in breaking their silence so that they may answer their call to preach. Finally, to stir up the gifts in women, Jackson provides moments of reflection to guide women in using their voices.
Not Built to Break
In this candid memoir, Jackson brings to life her experience of growing up in the home with an alcoholic father, a shameful and embarrassing marriage and the escape to Wisconsin that would become her lifesaver. Jackson sheds light on her restoration process that ended with her return to Louisiana as a preacher, which brings about a new set of difficulties. Not Built to Break is a story about choices and consequences and how those choices may sidetrack God’s ultimate plans for our lives but they do not stop them. Though families can be the source of pain, they also provide a strong solid foundation on which to stand and to build. This story is also a powerful one of restoration and jubilation.
