I had the privilege of writing an article for Christianity Today this week. This article first appeared on October 14, 2015 on Her.Meneutics In all of my remembered days, two truths remain constant: I believe in God, and I am fat. While there have been seasons…
“The embodied Christ risen again. Not a spirit. Not an imagination. Not some new form. His body was dead and now his body is alive. Resurrection. Restoration. The body is important and it came back, too.”
This word that came to dwell with us, full of grace and truth has harsh words for those who would seek to tell people that one must be thin in order to properly serve God.
My personality, purity culture, and the way I understood how “fatness” worked in regards to relationships were the perfect storm to set me up for this damaging relationship.
