Some say things are improving for women in ministry. I’ve met one or two. I know some online. It will persist as long as men hold the power and make the decisions concerning this issue. The problem isn’t “when will the power-brokers relax the rules?“. The problem is “who are the power-brokers?“. The argument around the boardroom table shouldn’t be, “Should we allow women in ministry?” but “Let’s relinquish our hold on the power and share it equally with women.”
