Women should manage Church

Published 27/06/2014

DELIBERATELY, or otherwise, the media persistently refuses to make a distinction between the Church and Church management.

The Christian Church is either Christ at work in the world, or it is just one more association.

Church management is made up at present of celibate men, whose job it is to implement Christ's orders.

Why no women? The record shows this arrogant, lopsided management system is not fit for purpose. The Church should use the best managers – women.
