Stand Up in Solidarity

On Austin Pride weekend, Christopher Mack looks through the Gospel of Luke’s portrayal of a woman bent down to ponder what it looks like to stand up in solidarity for the marginalized. [Luke 13:10-17]


  • How might you allow your formation in the Divine Womb to shape your identity?
  • Where might our habitual patterns and comfort zones be pressing down on the marginalized?
  • How might we confront the powers of resentment and rejection with steadfast joy?
