The Glass Ceiling Women Are Not Allowed to Break

by Murray Campbell

The Glass Ceiling Women Are Not Allowed to Break image

Recent conversations about abortion in Australia and in the United States have made it clear that it is not enough for a woman to be a woman... I wonder, instead of women and men jumping to break more ceilings, what if we learned from Jesus, and stopped climbing on our step-ladders and shattering glass all over those underneath us?
