The prompt to write this blog came unexpectedly while reading a short but unusually candid post, from, of all sources, FaceBook . This thought provoking, bold post was from an old family friend we have known for many years.
The basic premise of the FB post was a lecture she had heard about the full participation of women in the life of the church. She recalled how as a young student, she had to come to terms that pursuing a career as a pastor or evangelist was not really an option for her, being that women were not accepted for those roles. She felt that it was positive to be discussing these options and that hopefully, the next generation of women have more opportunities and not face similar barriers.
