Collins noted in his book "Language of God’ that those of us with a “Y” chromosome are 14 times more likely to end up in jail. We’re a bit like a drunk on a horse–we figure out the problem of listing to one side, then fall off the other. I’m glad that my 5 year old daughter is likely to be free to be a doc (and of the 3 of my kids, she’s the most interested in it; I’m encouraging that), but I wonder if we are risking stereotyping by trying to fix the problem, too.
Coming back to the Cross, we can glorify God in everything we do (as Eric Liddell’s mission leader in Chariots of Fire said, in “peeling a spud”); it makes me wonder if we lean too much to man’s definition of success.
I would love to see my daughter walk to get her med school diploma, though :).
I just read the Blue Parakeet (by Audible) and found it very good. I have been thinking about posting a book review, but want to read a bit on others’ perspectives before I do.
