Leigh Newton holds that social media is an important way to bring about women’s ordination in the LCA. A few days ago he recorded a video which included reference to his experience of women seminarians and pastors from Wartburg Theological College, Dubuque, Iowa, where his wife studied for her M.Div and many of our older pastors were trained.
Would you consider making your own video and uploading it to YouTube? Women’s ordination has suffered because of fear within the LCA, and fear does not reflect the vote at Synod or the massive support around Australia amongst laity and clergy for women to be ordained. The more we speak up, the less any fear is experienced as being real, and the closer women’s ordination will be.
We cannot delay until another Synod or wait another generation. Ordain women in April!
