Raquel St. Clair brings a womanist perspective to these questions, noting that marginalized persons, particularly women of color, have too often experienced the call to discipleship as a call simply to "suffering, shame, and surrogacy." Her close reading of the Gospel of Mark highlights the importance of freely accepting the consequences of answering Jesus' call.
