“The shining exterior of inclusion and equality masks a reality of denial, marginalization and despair.”

03 Sep

GENEVA, 30 October 2009 (LWI) – Statistics about increasing women’s ordination in the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) member churches are encouraging. However, “the shining exterior of inclusion and equality masks a reality of denial, marginalization and despair,” representatives from LWF member churches heard at the ongoing Women’s Pre-Assembly (WPA) at Bogis-Bossey, near Geneva, Switzerland.

As the CTICR has ruled that there are no theological roadblocks to women’s ordination, the matter is now simply a sociological/administrative issue within the LCA.  There is no need to treat the issue as if the Church is breaking new ground.  Others have trod this path and their experience is highly positive.
