I got a special hug today from Dr. Cynthia Kunsman a very brave lady who has been fighting a battle against authoritarian spiritual abuse. Cynthia sent me a link to a wonderful post about marriage and the head/body metaphor. I would like to share this link with you because I believe the article is very well written and balanced. Here is the link Who is in charge? Or who cares?

I’m convinced that if we really listen to the text, the right question is not, “who’s in charge?”, but “who cares?” (i.e. who cares for one another as a head and body care for and cooperate with one another?)
I recommend that you browse through the article. It isn’t too long, but it is powerful.
Feel free to comment here and/or on Mart’s blog. Enjoy and thank you to Cynthia for sending this hug to me today! You can visit Cynthia’s blog here or her web site here. Cynthia’s material on hierarchy, spiritual abuse, the Family Integrated Church movement and more is extensive and thought-provoking.
