A couple of days ago John Piper was asked the question, “Is There a Place for Female Professors at Seminary?”
I’ve listened to Mr. Piper’s response and I am not surprised at all. He goes on to answer the question with a lot of assumptions as is true Piper fashion. I have a hard time understanding how a person or group can speak with such authority on the way Christianity should function when there are 30 plus different denominations that make up the Church. But that will be a conversation for another day.
Today I’m sharing the first half of my conversation with my friend Emily Hunter McGowin. I hadn’t planned on sharing it so soon but I couldn’t think of a better way to respond to what’s been said and shared the last few days concerning women. I hope women find this conversation as encouraging as I did, and I hope men listen and take a moment to think about ways they might better support women within the church.
