the “real” questions

Perhaps the real questions go more like this: What does it mean for women to pursue the full use of their gifts in the Church in western Christianity has lost its missional purpose? What does it mean to hitch one’s star to the Christian status quo, especially if that status quo is a narcissistic, capitalistic perversion of the Gospel? In summary, what does it really mean for a woman to be released into her potential, to be trusted with a ministry role, or to secure a salaried ministry position only to find that, for all her new-found freedom, authority, and seeming equality, she is only rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic?

The excerpt above was taken verbatim from an article written by Sally Morgenthaler, posted on Christianity Today. The article was a three part series entitled A New Conversation about Gender.

I don’t have a lot to say about the quote…I am still trying to process what in the world this lady is even talking about. I just thought I would share.
