|MEN + WOMEN: GENDER IN THE CHURHC
The Christian Church has a varied track record when it comes to gender—especially over the last 100 years as women’s roles in the home, the church, and society have shifted, and with varied responses.
Some cite Paul’s exhortations in the New Testament to restrict leadership positions to men. Others cite Lydia as the first European convert and a prominent member of the Philippian church (supporting Paul), not to mention a sense of progress over the last 2,000 years, in order to take a wholly affirming position. There are myriad perspectives in between.
Join a few local clergy for an open conversation on the questions of gender in the Church.
Grab a drink. Ask your questions. Watch some clergy sweat.
