General Theology / Re: Church of England Votes to Ordain Women as Bishops
« Last post by KR Wordgazer on Yesterday at 07:19:03 PM »
If they believe they should have bishops, it's good they are now willing to have women bishops.  Women have been acting as bishops on the missionary field for over 100 years (traveling from church to church, ministering to new pastors rising up from among the people).  High time they were welcomed in their own countries!

I'd rather a church have bishops and women as bishops, than a church have no bishops but silences and subjugates women.

It does release more women into ministry insofar as bishops go. It is not clear how this decision will effect that hard-to-define body known as the Anglican Communion, though!

if it releases women into more areas of ministry, then it is a good step.

General Theology / Church of England Votes to Ordain Women as Bishops
« Last post by Dan on Yesterday at 02:05:53 PM »
While other churches in the Anglican communion have been ordaining women as bishops for some time (Episcopalians, etc.), the Church of England recently voted to make this change as well. While I know that most here would not agree with the office of bishop in the church, I am wondering what thoughts, if any, you have about this decision?

P.S. I am still Catholic and still lovin' it.

I've never read an egal book on marriage.  And I had never heard of any of the ones I've mentioned in the post (including Patricia Gundry's) except for Gerald Ford's.

I'll get around to reading them one day.

yes, someone needs to write some more.  Do you remember Patricia Gundry's book on marriage.  Heirs Together.  I used to give one to people newly engaged.  :)

With thanks to friends on the CBE facebook group, I have collated some egalitarian books on marriage.

Keep showing yourselves faithful.  When one proposes a paradigm shift, a possible reaction is to wonder about the motives of the proposer.
