Welcome back to Advent Next, a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. This week we are talking with Dr. Denis Fortin, professor at Andrews University as we discuss the ecumenical movement and if there is room to find unity among diversity.  With so many churches factioning and people leaving churches because they fail to find common grounds, we explore what it would take to keep people together and find a common ground of worship.

Welcome back to Advent Next, a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. This week we are continuing our discussion with Pastor Danielle Pilgrim regarding how our theology can often sanction bigotry and how the gospel is the affirmation of human dignity.

Should Women Be Pastors? (Pr. Danielle Pilgrim)

Should Women Be Pastors? (Pr. Danielle Pilgrim)

May 29, 2021

#ordination #womeninministry #femalepastors

 

Welcome back to Advent Next, a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. This week we open up a riveting discussion with Pastor Danielle Pilgrim on female pastors and we get to hear her story on why she rejected her commission. So let’s start with little background information, what does it mean to be commissioned? In this specific denomination, there was a vote back in 2015 by the General Conference worldwide church that stated women in pastoral ministries would not be allowed to be “ordained” like their male counterparts. This distinction came from the underlying fundamental belief that pastoral positions in their official capacity are set aside by God for men and not women. This ordination confers some extra “authority” within the church structure such as the ability to baptize in a way that is recognized as “valid” by the institution. I have a separate podcast on the history of ordination for those who want to learn more about this, but essentially, when a woman becomes a pastor she is not ordained by the church, rather she is commissioned. This is a title that essentially says, we recognize the work you are doing, but we believe the authority associated with ordination such as baptism, should be reserved for your male counterparts alone. They alone have the blessing of God in this position. I have a previous podcast that gets into this type of thinking in more detail, but this a very simplified summary of the differences between ordination and commission so you can understand what a commission is and why a woman would choose to reject it. 

 

I’d love to hear your thoughts on today’s topic, so take a close listen and let me know.

Welcome back to Advent Next, a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. Today, we are tackling the mental health, jesus and therapy. There is often a stigma surrounding mental health in church or in religious settings, an underlying belief that faith is enough to cure any illness. Today, we are taking a short detour to celebrate Mental Health Awareness month to answer a Q & A letter that combines mental health, Jesus and therapy.
