Real Product: Manicured Ministry

by Alexis Vaughan, Rose Marie Berger | June 2008

We don’t think the good folks at Christian Tools of Affirmation Inc. had the story of Jael and Sisera (Judges 4:21) in mind when they developed their “Woman of God” manicure set, but it’s all we could think of when it came to “nail sharpening.” The set includes nail clippers, a plastic nail brush, two cuticle sticks, and a brightly colored, flower-shaped emery board—all tucked neatly in a travel-sized vinyl pouch printed with inspiration for “grace and peace” from 2 Peter 1:2. (Customized ministry messages for women sold separately.)

Sojourners relies on the support of readers like you to sustain our message and ministry.

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
