Identity, Imago Dei, and Patriarchy

Feminist Theology in an Age of Fear and Hope has posted an essay of mine on Matthew 3:3-17. It's about identity and how we form our identities within a pervasive system of patriarchy and from the imago Dei. Many thanks to MomPriest at Seeking Authentic Voice for starting this blog on such an important topic.

Lovely and thought provoking. I'm intrigued by the role of fear in the essay -- fear of intimacy, fear of relationship, fear of a true "I-Thou" experience (to use Buber's phrase). To me, fear seems to be central -- and much of patriarchy is a culturally defined response to that fear.
