About Thy Queendom Come:

We are all born inside a fence. Not the same fence, but we all have our own variation of restrictions-passed-down-to-us. The narrative passed down to Christian women by patriarchal religion tells us not only that we are bad, but that we need someone outside ourselves to save us. We need a revolutionary new spirituality, and a revolutionary term to describe it: the queendom of God.

Telling the stories of some of the strongest women in all of Scripture–like Delilah, Deborah, and Jael–as well as some of the most brutalized–like the daughter of Jephthah–Thy Queendom Come offers a new path forward. In the queendom of God, we are no longer waiting on a rescuer. We realize we are ready to conceive and give birth to new life–a creative act between God and us, no masculine authority necessary.

We can, as women, say yes to the divine annunciation, quite apart from any sinner’s prayer, the blessing of priests, or an ordination by men. We can leave the narrow kingdom behind and embrace a more vibrant, just, and inspiring spiritual life in God’s queendom.
