that was fast…i guess all’s well that ends well…

This could very well end the progress the few divisions that support women in ministry have made. Brazil and most of the rest of the South American division are greatly opposed to women in church leadership. There has been for decades an exception specifically for the SAD exempting them from needing to ordain women as church elders. There are plenty of nefarious forces working to keep women out of powerful positions in the church and they can be celebrating this latest move. It will be easy to slide Koehler into the Prez position when Wilson retires.

This made me chuckle.
