Seriously, I am happy and excited to see women returned to their rightful place along side men as the Spirit continues to move in this world. May God continue to bless all His Church the world over. I love this cartoon and post from Cartoon Church.
The most intersting part of that post is a quote from Andrew Carey, son of a former Archbishop of Canterbury:
"We found out in the Church of England that when some evangelicals attacked the appointment of Dr Rowan Williams because of previously held views that this backfired spectacularly on them. The first response of network and AAC leaders, in my view, should be that of welcome, prayer and a desire to meet with her. The rough stuff can come later."
Hm, tactics and strategy and revealing that the "rough stuff" will come later. Well now isn't that how we should be Christ to a broken world! Sigh...
Everliving God, Whose will it is that all should come to You through your Son Jesus Christ: Inspire our witness to Him, that all may know the power of His forgiveness and the hope of His resurrection; Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
