Calling Out Sexism In Today's Church!??!?!
Reader the above flyer has really struck a nerve with some online Christian sisters....who think that sexism in the church needs to be heard and it needs to be called out. Why enter into ministry if you know that this is what you will face? It's a shame that women experience sexism when it comes to their call to ministry. Check out what this young Christian sister had to say:
This is a panel of all women discussing what it takes to be a great *office assistant* to the pastor. There is a panel of all men discussing what it takes to be a great *pastor*. I am not at all suggesting that these sisters do not take their jobs seriously or are not good at what they do. I am recognizing the inherent sexism in suggesting, by way of these two panels, that the only thing women can do in the church is be the pastor's secretary. If it's unintentional (and I don't believe that it is because the conference host is deeply patriarchal), it's tone deaf at best.Thought??
