  • The pirate Lioness🦁
In the midst of the Hundred Years War between England and France, an enraged French woman named Jeanne de Clisson took to the sea with a fleet of warships, where she mercilessly hunted down ships of King Philip VI to avenge her husband’s death. For her ferocity, she eventually acquired the name The Lioness of Brittany. Jeanne and her crew would slaughter the crew of the King’s ships, leaving two or three sailors alive, so that the message would get back to the King that the Lioness of Brittany had struck once again. The first thing Jeanne de Clisson did was to sell off the lands that remained to her and raise a small force of loyal men with whom she attacked pro-French forces in Brittany. When her situation became too dangerous on land, she purchased three warships and took to the seas.

She had her ships painted black and dyed their sails red to intimidate her enemy, earning the title “The Black Fleet”. The ships of the Black Fleet patrolled the English Channel for French ships, especially those owned by King Phillip and members of the French nobility. Her crews, as merciless under her orders as she was herself, would kill entire crews, leaving only one or two alive to carry news to the king that she had struck again. This earned Jeanne the epithet, “The Lioness of Brittany”, reviled as a monster by some, praised as a heroine by others.
Here's a woman that stepped out of her role in the 1300. And became a leader of Many Men. Very odd for the time, considering that she was born into nobility and was supposed to be sitting in a drawing room somewhere doing needlepoint. She turned on her own country in the midst of the big war to attack,  because she was married to an Englishman oh, and the French King had killed her husband.  That was some kind of fire phoenix that came a  rising. Never underestimate the power of a woman.

  • “He who knows God or the Christ in the sense of being grasped by him and being united with him does the good. He who knows the essential structure of things in the sense of having received their meaning and power acts according to them; he does the good, even if he has to die for it.” - Paul Tillich

Today has been a day of affirmation, a day of God calling me forward, to go beyond what I have envisioned is possible for myself. Between a powerful sermon this morning, a long conversation with a fellow prophetic friend, and reading Paul Tillich this evening I am beginning to step into the call I have been denying for a very long time. I say this to share the following: I am called to be a prophetic voice in the public sphere and within the Church - and I am willing to die for it. I am willing to share the radical love of God, of Jesus, in such a way that I am willing to lay my life on the line for those who do not have a voice. Maybe that sounds egotistical to some of you, or perhaps over dramatic, but this world seeks to annihilate those who challenge the power structures maintain the status quo. I come from a place of deep love and devotion. I will love this world so hard that it has no choice but to change. I have no choice. Spirit has grasped my heart and will not let go. I don’t yet know what this looks like, but that’s where trusting the Spirit comes in. I am yours God. I am prepared to make noise. And I will make noise. Watch me.
