The Women’s Ministry Network webpage has been redesigned, thanks to Isabel Mason and Tanya Wittwer. The site, is still a work in progress but, as a webpage is an evolving thing, additions will continue over coming months. Perhaps it’s a coincidence that it corresponds roughly with International Women’s Day, a day that seems to go mostly unnoticed in the LCA.
There are significant resources on the new website that provide the theology and history of the debate on women’s ordination in the LCA. There are study-guides, conference galleries and women’s stories from Biblical days and today, as well as current news. These stories need to be heard for us all to understand the importance of acknowledging women’s faith and spirituality, as well as their leadership and wisdom. The days are gone when women are seen simply as an adjunct to men.
It’s a great resource and worth coming back to. Bookmarking the site may be the way to go.
