I asked a question during an elder’s meeting that prompted a conversation about woman’s role in the church. It was a civilized dialogue but basically fruitless. Predetermined positions where gently given and a minimal amount of consideration was given to opposing points of view. I walked out of that meeting basically hearing, “Don’t intentionally rock the boat for some will find it unsettling. Let’s try to keep things the way they are.” Such answers will never sit well on my theological conscious but they are elders and will submit.

My question received a response that was less than favorable but I did gain new insight on the subject of women leadership in the church. No position will work in harmony within the Scripture and church practice. Our agruements do not add up.
