As a younger minister, I was invited to address a seminar, then a conference, on the role of women in the Church. I was asked to present the egalitarian point of view. I sent my old presentation to a theological student today, not to persuade him of this or that point of view, but to give him something that would help him as he struggles with the issues. I have at the same time put up my work on the "behind the scenes" pages of this blog: The Role of Women in the Church. OBSERVATION: At the seminar, another minister presented the hierarchical point of view. He spoke before me, and made a mistake in assuming that an egalitarian point of view had to be liberal. This one is not.
