Are we still asking this question?

In the consideration of "Things Your Pastor Wants to Tell You (But Can't Because S/He needs the Job)," this week's question is "What about women?"  Can we be gender-blind?  Or, is there sill much work left to do?  

Suppose your church announces that the new pastor is female.

Do you react differently when you walk into a classroom and see a woman standing behind the speaker's stand?

In a large group (or a small one), do you observe the women contributing in equal amount to the talk done by the men?

Did you know that there are still churches that -- by church law -- don't allow women to teach a mixed Sunday School class or a class of men?

What does scripture say about the role of women?
