Too often, we limit our discussion of the “role of women” to what women can or cannot do when the church assembles to worship. That’s more than just unfortunate; it is having negative consequences all around us. This small group study is intended to help us take a broader view of the role of women in the mission of God. From the beginning, God’s mission has been to enter into covenant relationships with His people. Women, from the beginning, have played extremely important roles in God’s interaction with His creation. We should take note and give women the respect and appreciation that is inherently theirs as beings who, like men, are created in the image of God (Gen 1:27). This is in no way the final word on the role women play in the mission of God, but it is at least one way to get the conversation started!
Grace and peace,
