Episode 18: Preach It, Sister!
After the recent flurry of debate regarding women preaching in the church, our friend and loyal listener Austin Burgard asked if he could share the story of his journey from complementariansim to egalitarianism. You won't believe it until you hear it. We also talk about why, despite what the complementarians loudly assert, the Bible does not forbid women from preaching or serving in ordained ministry.
