“Women ministering” or “Women in Ministry”.

womenI love this quote from an article written by Dr Scot McKnight, a Professor in Religious Studies

at North Park University (Chicago, Illinois). It’s taken from his article “Women Ministering” on www.

“When we ask the question of women in ministry, the debate almost immediately gravitates to traditional “women in ministry” texts. But I’d like us to ask another question — one both more biblical and more answerable: Do women do in your church what Miriam, Deborah, Huldah, Priscilla, Junia, and Phoebe did? Do they do what Mary did? Do they do what Jesus encouraged women to do?”

I think he asks us some brilliant questions!  Any thoughts?
