Women in Ministry Post
I think I was a little over-exuberant in self-promoting this on twitter (and of course, this will post to twitter… so here’s to more!), but I forgot to add a link here on my tumblr page to my latest post in Provoketive.
This time I wrote about women in ministry, from the perspective of someone who is 1. A woman 2. Has no desire to be in an official ministerial position.
Here’s an excerpt:
When I was a young woman trying to map out the course of my life before me, I often struggled with whether or not I should go into ministry. It was never a question of if I could be a minister; for, what reason was there that I could not? From my days as a new believer reading the Bible for the very first time, to now, as a more mature believer who has read in-depth translations, studies and commentaries regarding what Paul said to women in the Church, and heard numerous theological debates on whether women should or should not be in Church leadership and ministry, the scriptures have only reinforced to me that God has used and continues to use both men and women to tend to His sheep.
