Hen Scratches 05-07-07
I have decided to start posting 'hen scratches'. You can take it how you like. I have terrible hand writing, I would enjoy a hen party, I hen peck, I am as fussy as a hen with one chick, as mad as a wet hen, I simply want to gather the brood, or maybe I just want to be an adult 'chick'.
1. Today I note that Tim at Sansblogue has posted on women in ministry here and here, while Jim Hamilton mixes it up with Craig Blomberg, (and me, incidentally) on women teachers. Jim writes,
- To my thinking, the emasculation of the church has not happened as a result of a mighty influx of female pastors. The statistics show that, proportionally speaking, there are not many women who pastor churches. The church has conformed to the culture on the issue of gender roles not through the influence of women pastors, but through the female Sunday School teachers, female Bible study leaders, and prominent female preachers who are on billboards and television screens whether they pastor a church or not.
2. Drew Kaplan links to my series on Proverbs 31 and I will respond soon.
3. The best reason for the hen scratch posts is that response posting is considered better than commenting by Lingalinga.
