Bravo, Bee. Bravo.
Talk about breaking the glass ceiling: leaders at Bethlehem Evangelical Free Church announced last week their new policy allowing women to give announcements in church, “so long as they don’t do so in an authoritative fashion.”
The first woman to take advantage of the new policy, Heather Donnelly, made history by giving her non-authoritative “announcement suggestions” Sunday morning: “I just want to share what’s on my heart about next week’s potluck, if that’s okay,” Donnelly reportedly began, as church elders sat behind her on the stage, nodding approvingly.
Etc. All to the tune of ‘This is really how absurd they are, you know’.
