So over the next few weeks, among other things, I've decided to spend time thinking about women in ministry and what roles are open to women in the church. I've heard a lot of the arguments that are against female eldership in the church. I'm really keen to hear arguments for female eldership.
I know there are a bunch of you readers and friends who think women should be allowed to do everything. I really want to agree with you. I'm finding it difficult to justify biblically.
So convince me. If you use biblical arguments you'll be more convincing.
Right now, if I had to plant a church, I wouldn't have the highest levels of leadership open to women. Should I really rule out half the population?
