Above is a side conversation I had a few days ago with a fellow on Reddit. Before I go into too much detail let me first confess my sins. I have poor grammar myself, so I should have been mindful of their grammar when trying to engage with a discussion with me. It wasn't too many years ago my language art skills left much to be desired. It took some tough seminary papers where my grade was dropped not because of my subject but because of the grammar I used to write it. Someone did something similar to one of my previous posts and I corrected my mistake and thanked them for bringing it to my attention. I was not mindful that others might not be so accepting.
Second, I should have known, by the way they entered the discussion, they were after a quick jab, not a real conversation.
The real reason I am expanding this conversation to include others is simple: I want to have the discussion. The person I was talking to suggested this could be passive agressive. I share that so everything is out in the open. This is less about what I think and more about what you think. Should women, and really myself, be a minister? Can I be damned for accepting a call to ministry? If I am damned, if my words saves two, would that be worth damnation? I will conclude with another post I made to Facebook I look forward to the dialogue.
