Elsewhere

Elsewhere in blogland: Tony at don’t call me veronica has an interesting post titled “stuff pastors don’t talk about”. I found his respond to Women’s role in the church and home particularly short and sweet:

“A woman’s role in church and home is to love God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength – and second, to love their neighbor as they love themselves.

Oddly enough, this is the same role a man is to have.

Wouldn’t it be great if we lived that out? And as we did, wouldn’t we find that we were complementing each other in such a way that we felt like an equal, not because we were the same but because the two had become “one flesh?”

Hmm…

Perhaps complementarianism and egalitarianism aren’t competing ideas after all.”
