How I Came To Believe What I Believe: Complementarianism vs. Egalitarianism

Posted by Susan McGeown on January 4, 2018 at 4:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Do you know what “complementarian” vs. “egalitarianism” means within the faith based community?


You can search the Internet and find all manner of articles and opinions about both of these – and depending on which way you might ‘lean’ (I’m talking the “L” for liberal or “C” for conservative) the definition that you might settle on for both of these words might be significantly different than what IR...

OMG!

Most of us know what this strange looking collection of letters means but for those who don’t it’s the texting equivalent to the expression, “Oh my God!”  From the first moment that I was asked to preach, I’ve known I wanted to talk about the phrase, “Oh my God!”


Being a little Baptist girl, I grew up with a healthy respect for the phrase, “Oh my God!”  “Thou sh...

Why Do I Pray?

I was asked to do the women's devotional at the fall women's breakfast at our church.  Here it is.

And my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.”

Psalm 27:8 NL...

An Argument For Faith

Posted by Susan McGeown on December 22, 2010 at 7:40 AM Comments comments (2)

I do not know if this conversation ever even really occurred ... nor does it really matter to me.  I just liked the way things were presented and thought I'd share.  It's a long piece, but worth the read ... but if you only want to read a bit skip down to the blue bit at the end.  That's my favorite because I agree with the argument!!  :)

Christian Fiction and Me

Posted by Susan McGeown on May 16, 2010 at 4:45 PM Comments comments (3)

I didn’t set out to be categorized as a Christian fiction author.  In fact,when pressed to admit it, I don’t really enjoy reading Christian fiction that much so why would I want to be associated with it? Christian fiction, in case you don’t know, is fiction writing which promotes the Christian faith and its tenants. Even more importantly for me, Christian fiction almost always follows the guidelines set down by Chris...

My Spiritual Journey

Posted by Susan McGeown on March 23, 2010 at 10:17 AM Comments comments (0)


I was raised in a Christian home.  I have no memory when Church, God, and Prayer were not an integral part of my life.  My parents, married for 45 years, have shown a faithful commitment to God even through the hardest of times including the death of one child at 11 due to Cystic Fibrosis.  I remember standing at the bedside of my mother in 1998, as she lay there recoverin...
