A Non-Issue

He looked at me with a raised eyebrow that conveyed confusion. "So they didn't let women be pastors or elders? That doesn't make any sense!"

I love that I'm in a church now where it's not even a question whether or not women can be formal leaders in the church. As I recounted some of my past experiences in churches, it just sounded more and more ridiculous.

We're in the process of hiring a pastoral assistant/intern at my current church, and the issue of gender never even came up. Members of the search committee just said he/she as though it was obvious it could be either.

It's just nice to be in a place where this isn't an issue.
