One of the advantages of being a woman priest is that people tend not to mistake us for God, which they sometimes do with men. Penelope Jameison, Bishop of Dundin, New Zealand in the Chruch of England Newspaper; 11/20/92
At the creation there was no submission of the woman to the man enjoined - only the submission of both to their Maker, and to His divine order for the fulfilling of their destiny. Jack Hayford, Pastor of Church on the Way, Van Nuys California
Everywhere I go, I’m invited; if men have invited me [to speak], I’m under the authority of that committee. But I don’t accept the fact that as a woman I can’t preach to or teach men. My authority is the authority of God’s Word. Anne Graham Lotz.
We have a world to win for Christ. The ship is sinking, and we [stand] on the shore arguing about who should go to the rescue, men or women. Kari Malcolm.
It was not a woman who sold the Lord for thirty pieces of silver. They were not women who forsook the Lord in the garden and fled. It was not a woman who denied Him three times in the high priest’s house. But there were women who wailed and lamented when Jesus was led forth to be crucified. They were women who stood to the last by the cross. And they were women who were first to visit the grave “where the Lord lay.” Bishop J.C. Ryle, Expository Thoughts on the Gospels.
Not she with traitorous lips her Saviour stung; Not she denied Him with unholy tongue; She, whilst Apostles shrunk, could danger brave; Last at the cross, the earliest at the grave. Catherine Booth, Female Ministry; Salvation Army 1859.
What God opens, no one can shut. Dr. Andrea Macvicar
