Jen, great job. Yes, your voice matters. Thanks for feeding me this afternoon!


You go, Jen! A couple of observations, though, none of which disagrees with your points. (I *am* an academic, after all.)

I am a man. I heard the woman preach and I had no idea the overall response to her was negative. I do not dispute your overall argument that women are under represented in positions of leadership in the church, and all people are worse off because of it. Just know that not all men disagree.

I am also a left-leaning Christian. I respect my right-leaning brothers and sisters, and I learn from them. But Jesus was nothing if not a radical.

Your voice matters. I look forward to hearing it again.
