You remind me that the Apostle Paul told women to be silent in the church. I would remind you of the word of this same apostle that in Christ there is no longer male nor female and of the prophecy of Joel: “I will pour my spirit upon all flesh and your sons and your daughters will prophesy.” I do not pretend to be John the Baptist rebuking the Pharisees. I do not claim to be Nathan upbraiding David. I aspire only to be Balaam’s ass, castigating his master.—Katharina Zell
Read the essay. Oh, and nice work, Debbie.
