Laryn Weaver will talk honestly about her journey in receiving St. Paul’s beautiful yet controversial teaching in Ephesians 5:21-33, and the even greater call for all of us to live out this passage. Should wives be submissive to their husbands? How should husbands best love their wives? The answer to these questions brings us directly into the call to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God.
