    Another interesting piece Tara. It’s a shame that ministers of the word often neglect the time and space dimension when they apply the words of Scripture. For me, Hebrews 4:12 comes to mind. His word is alive and active. From that I take away that those words must be applied to the time and space presently occupied by the hearer, and those responsible for it’s dissemination must apply it appropriately.

    Where the socio-economic dispensation made it expedient for the man to hunt/gather and bring back to the mainstay of the home (the wife) so the hunter/gatherer could rest from his travails, we, men and women are now hunter/gatherers together and so we must be the mainstay of the home together.

    That said though, I am somewhat leery of adopting a universal approach to this issue. There are still areas where women are strenuously defensive of their roles as mainstay and are perfectly happy even insistent that the dynamics they have always known remain undisturbed. For those thus inclined, perhaps their wishes can be respected. There are some burqa wearing Muslims in the middle east, who see the efforts by the western world to “free them of their oppressed status” as an affront to their way of living.
