Hiring 1000 women pastors.
Perhaps our August President of North America is saying TO THE UNIONS.
“I am not telling you, you HAVE to begin the Ordaining of Women if you have
NOT begun. BUT, if you HAVE Begun to Ordain Women to the ministry you
have my blessing to continue.”
REMEMBER – HOW something is said IS important. And what is NOT said
is ALSO instructional.
Sometimes something NOT said IS PERMISSION TO DO, to GO!
I LOVE President Jackson. He is a GREAT politician. A GREAT Leader in
the church. That is WHY he is NOT always appreciated by BOTH underlings,
AND the higher ups.
He has great wisdom and understanding.
PS: 2 years of Practical Training after Graduation – Internship. Working under
others BEFORE the offer of a Leadership position. This occurs in most professions.
In the SDA church, After Internship, one may apply anywhere for a Leadership
position. Either pastor of a small congregation, or Assist Pastor of a very large one.
Depending on the Union, whether one will be Commissioned, whether one will be
Ordained. Depends on where one is hired and allowed to Practice Independently.
Yes! “Hiring” is the Correct Word!
Fulcrum7 tends to, most of the time, see the Dark Side of Issues and comes out
“swinging”. It did so again on the word “Hiring”.
But then, THEY DO NOT LIKE WOMEN BEHIND THE PULPIT OR even as Elders.
I am surprised Doug Bachelor does not write for them sometimes.
