Over the last few months, nobody’s been saying much about women’s ordination. We’re guessing that’s because we Adventists have officially worked the whole thing out. Who knew we had it in us to solve what, just a year or two ago, was THE hot potato vexing just about anyone following Adventist policymaking.
It seems like just yesterday serious bandwidth was given to arguing about something as petty as appropriate punishment for fellow believers that didn’t toe the party line. MAN are we glad that nonsense is over.
We don’t know who made this whole thing go away but congrats, for REALS. It was such a loaded issue. Nobody seemed to be able to think outside their preconceived notions when it came to voting it. The fact that we’ve moved on to other things is quite frankly amazing.
We gotta say: Now that we’ve successfully closed this chapter there simply is no mountain we can’t scale as a church. We could even start caring about mission.
