The God And My Girlfriends Podcast

On today's episode we have a fun girlfriend chat with singer/songwriter, Britt Savage. We talk about everything from The Golden Bachelor, escapism, and how we can all combat the feeling of hopelessness by doing small things to make the world a better place.

Then, we have a wonderful conversation with biblical scholar and author/blogger, Marg Mowczko. She helps us break down the difference between egalitarianism and complementarianism, why 1 Timothy 2:12 doesn't mean women can't be in ministry, how women's roles have been diminished in some biblical translations and which translation she would recommend right now for us to use. It's a super informative conversation so don't miss it!

Marg Mowczko lives north of Sydney, Australia, with her husband. She has a theology degree from the Australian College of Ministries and a Master of Arts from Macquarie University with a specialization in Early Christian and Jewish Studies. For the past decade, Marg has hosted a blog at MargMowczko.com where she writes about the biblical basis for mutuality, or equality, between men and women in Christian marriage and in the church, and other related topics.
