On Women in Ministry

Interesting post about Phoebe  at Scot McKnight’s Jesus Creed blog. He points out Phoebe’s service, outlined by Paul in Romans 16, but not before he explains a biblical role for women in churches.

“Women in the early church arise out of households and function as leaders in that forum — not just in providing hospitality but in creating sacred space wherein they function as leaders and teachers and missionary-apostles and benefactors.”
