Daily Lectionary Reading: Psalm 106:1-12 (NRSV, The Message) Genesis 27:1-29 (NRSV, The Message) Romans 16:1-6 (NRSV, The Message)
I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a deacon of the church at Cenchreae...
Romans 16:1 (NRSV)
I hope that at some point as the church universal we will be able to read this passage from sacred text and not be shocked by it. Phoebe was a deacon, a servant of the church, some understand her to be a MINISTER of the church at Cenchreae.

The church and my own spiritual journey has been supported, enlivened, and expanded by the ministry AND LEADERSHIP of women in our midst.
