  1. Do you accept this person’s accusation at face value that she is marginalized because she is a woman? The bible says not to receive an accusation against an elder except on the testimony of two or three witnesses (1Tim 5:19). How much more when she accuses the entire leadership! Maybe she is just a crank. Maybe she just doesn’t like what the bible has to say about “complementarianism” or “patriarchy”. Maybe she is unstable and thinks she has found a sympathetic ear and some fellow malcontents.

    Your reply: “There it is. Weight. Value. Contribution. Reciprocity. Dignity. Personhood. It looks like being seen, having a voice, and being asked to use it because it is gift.” is missing one key word… “role”. You can have “Weight. Value. Contribution. Reciprocity. Dignity. Personhood.” and be assigned a subordinate role. In fact, the one who is assigned such a role will only realize their full “weight, value, dignity, personhood”, and can only make a “contribution” while functioning within the bounds of their station in life. Motherhood and managing the household under the headship of the husband is a glorious thing. It is only agreement with the discontent of our age that would cause one to view such a calling as anything less glorious that the male calling of director, provider, protector, priest and teacher.

    Remember the adage… “the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.” Women have a glorious calling in the Kingdom of God.
