What is PASCH  God's Word to Women has been working to improve resources for those suffering abuse or working with the abused.  PASCH, Peace and Safty in the Christian Home, is an excellent organization with an informative website.   GWTW has had a link to their website for years, but their information needs to be more visible on our site.  Therefore, we are posting some of their basic documents in the hope of reaching a broader audience.

The Evangelical Debate over Biblical "Headship"   by Dr. David M. Scholer.  In this scholarly article, Dr Scholer provides a synopsis of the debate over biblical headship. Much of the Christian literature in the past five years on domestic violence and sexual abuse of women, especially evangelical publications, contains pointed discussions of the relationship between biblical teachings of "male headship" and the reality of abused and battered women. Included are studies on kephale and authentein on the precise points upon which the so-called headship debate rests.

The Story of God: Women in the Early Church  by Pamela Walford.  Want to know how the church's traditional position on women evolved?  In this outstanding article, Pamela Walford reveals how, in less than 400 years following the deaths of the last apostles, the early Christian church yielded to the influence of the Greco-Roman culture in which it was immersed.  It relinquished  the egalitarianism that had been established by Jesus and set the stage for the subjugation and silencing of women that has spanned more than two millennia and continues to detrimentally impact the lives of women today.

Sisters In Healing is an article about Mary Dunham Faulkner and how God led her to her ministry through Leah's Sisters, an organization committed to rebuilding nations through restored women. Here is a word of hope, encouragement and motivation.
