September ‘Witness’ addresses women and the Church

The September issue of The Lutheran Witness covers some of the big subjects surrounding women and the Church.

in-witness-INAnswering questions like “Should women be drafted?” and “Why doesn’t the LCMS ordain women?,” this issue explains how the Church has a distinct understanding of the gifts and roles given to women.

Other articles outline what a deaconess is, little-known women in the Early Church who — still today — serve as examples of great faith, why the home is a special and safe place for women to show mercy and care, and how the story of Rosa Young is having a big impact.
