My friend Duncan is exploring the topic of women and leadership positions in the church on his blog. This is an interesting topic that has come up in a few different conversations over the past three weeks. Opinions on this subject are all over the place – some stress the writings of Paul (2 Timothy especially) and think that woman are not allowed to hold leadership roles in the church, other stress that Jesus never denegrated women by making them feel like posessions or servants and even revealed significant parts of His message to them first. I personally worship at a church with a full time woman pastor. She is an excellent teacher, and I have a tremendous amount of respect for her.
What are your thoughts on this subject?
