It has been an amazing two years since the historic Seneca Falls 2 Christian Women's Rights Conference was held in Orlando, Florida on July 24, 2010, and the formation of Freedom for Christian Women Coalition was made public. Many things have happened since then, both good and bad, but we have many wonderful things to look forward to. Among these is the publication of Co-founder, Shirley Taylor's, new book! We have also received word that Special Consultant to FreeCWC, Waneta Dawn, is working on a sequel to her fictional DV resource novel, Behind the Hedge. Both of these women have much to offer in the cause of freedom for Christian women.
Special Consultant Cindy Kunsman did an outstanding job of representing FreeCWC in Canada (more about that in a separate section of this publication). All three of the afore-mentioned women participated in the Seneca Falls 2 conference and were signers of the infamous Apology Demand letter which was read via video from the conference and mailed by Fed-Ex to leaders of the Council for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (We remain indebted to The Associated Baptist Press, Mainstream Baptist, and the many, many, bloggers which gave much deserved media coverage and attention to the cause for freedom for Christian Women at that time and since.
We have not wavered from our stated goals of two years ago when we issued the press release in 2010 announcing the Seneca Falls 2 Christian Women's Rights Conference. It read as follows:
MEDIA ADVISORY, July 2 /Christian Newswire/ -- A movement among evangelical men and women has begun in favor of functional equality and freedom for Christian women. We are organizing, and we intend to keep things moving in a forward direction. This is the focus of Seneca Falls 2 Evangelical Women’s Rights Convention.
A few convention previews:
• A new Coalition will be announced at the Conference
• A new Publication will be announced at the Conference
It is time for evangelical women to reject unscriptural gender role restrictions which reduce them to servitude and to embrace their God-given right to serve Christ in any capacity that he chooses to call them.
It is time for Christian men and women to embrace and appreciate God-given gender differences without giving place to haughty spirits of superiority, degrading feelings of inferiority, hatred, prejudice, fear of one another's differences, or the sinful need to either be in charge or to submit in an idolatrous manner.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to the many men and women who have supported freedom for Christian women and stood with us since that announcement was release two years ago.
