There’s no such thing as ‘two integrities’

It’s time we stopped pretending.  People who refuse to recognise the ministry of women do not simply have a different view of the matter from those of us who do.  They believe in a different God.  After all, if God is male, ‘he’ even looks different from the God I meet in jesus Christ and who blesses the Church through the ministry of women made in God’s own image!

    My God is rather fuzzy around the edges- so I have fewer problems with all that!

      When does fuzzy become totally out of focus?

        It’s all apophatic!

    Isn’t part of our difficulty that we ALL believe in ‘different Gods’ over a whole host of issues – the ministry of women is just the tip of a very big iceberg!

    Absolutely Lawrence – wew are in a world of inclusivity, in business it would be totally unaccptable to exclude women from any job.

    This is not the only issue that many will struggle with and perhaps we need to learn to bend and meet others rather than being rigid, fixed and easily broken. God cannot be so fixed.

      At the end of the day discrimination is discrimination. Blessed are the peacemakers does not always mean we should put up with intolerance

        No indeed – making peace rarely means ‘putting up’ with things!

      I agree

    It sounds like an outmoded clergy desperately clinging onto power. When will they catch up with the real world that long ago moved towards equality of the sexes.

      Usually male clergy in the nearest thing to dresses they can get away with wearing!
