At Bethlehem, in the last 32 years, one of the deeply gratifying things for me is that alongside a spiritually mature, biblically informed, humble, Christlike male eldership, there has risen up an army of intelligent, articulate, mature, Bible-saturated, God-centered, Christ-exalting, strong women who partner with the men of the church to get the ministry of family and society done. And that happens because we don’t think in terms of ‘men should be taught deep, rich, solid, life transforming theology, and women, they should be taught something else.’ No way. They both should be thinking, meditating, reading, and going. They both have brains — in fact women’s brains are usually sharper.
