October 1998 Plumbline statement on CBF

The Oct. 1998 Plumbline contained the following statement: "The SBC has no feminist theologian leaders calling for the worship of the 'Christ-Sophia.' But CBF does...The SBC has no leaders who refer to God as 'mother.' But CBF does."  Jann Aldredge-Clanton conducted a breakout session at the 1995 CBF General Assembly  and is a promoter of feminist theology.  She is the cited "leader" who espouses a "Christ-Sophia"  but does not seem to be serving on any CBF boards. She apparently has not conducted any subsequent sessions. I am thus unaware of any CBF role for her subsequent to 1995.
