Should women be drafted? Why doesn’t the LCMS ordain women?

This month, we’re going all out by covering the big issues surrounding women and the Church.

What’s a deaconess? Who was Rosa Young?

It’s time to set the record straight on what we as the Church believe, teach and confess about the daughters of Eve. And in so doing, it’s good for us to know how our Lord designed men
and women to interact, as giver and receiver, defender and defended.

What can we learn from women who have known great suffering? Why does the Lord have a good plan and purpose for each one of us?

The world would have us believe that women are no different from men. But we know that’s not true. Each has been created for specific tasks with a specific purpose.

Who are some of the little-known women who have gone before us in the faith? Why are moms so vital to families?

So before we get our defenses up — before we start humming “Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better” — let’s see what our heavenly Father has set before us — starting with, as always,
His Word.

(And maybe a phone call home to Mom. Neither can hurt.)
