The Church of England has clearly received revelation from God as God is not a
respecter of persons and would not discriminate against women! I hope all
religions will pray to God and realize that women are top religious leaders too
and not just baby makers!
Did God supply a revelation to the Church of England? Or did the Church of
England simply use the brains that God has already given us all to use?
And in a decade they will wonder why there was any fuss at all.
"I commend unto you Phebe our sister, which is a servant of the church which
is at Cenchrea: That ye receive her in the Lord, as becometh saints, and that ye
assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a
succourer of many, and of myself also."(Romans 16: 1-2)______________________________In the King James Bible, Paul calls
Phebe (Saint Phoebe in Catholicism) “a servant of the church.”
Numerous other translations say ‘deacon' rather than servant. The
original Greek says diakonos (deacon). We don’t know if Paul himself
appointed her to that role but she was clearly the leader of the church in
Cenchrea and Paul calls on the saints there to assist her in all things.

@Utefan60,If God is the head, what difference does it make if
it's man or woman to lead?Never ever ever nurse hurt feelings
over irrelavant matters. It causes problems when you do.
worf,"If God is the head, what difference does it make if
it's man or woman to lead?"______________________________Precisely.
If it doesn't make a difference then it shouldn't be a problem for a
woman to lead. :)
Women are humans the same as men, so why should there be a difference in
leadership roles or, social standing and participation. It is mans chauvinism
and women's submission that holds women back. It has nothing to do with any
god. It is mans own ignorance.
