St Paul Making Friends on #InternationalWomensDay

Women are to remain quiet in the assemblies, since they have no permission to speak: theirs is a subordinate part, as the Law itself says. If there is anything they want to know, they should ask their husbands at home: it is shameful for a woman to speak in the assembly. — 1 Cor. 14:34-35

Fun Facts from Church History: Not Everyone Liked Farel

farel[One] Mr. Ducrest, who had a seat in the ordinary council [of Geneva] as one of the ancient syndics, and who was at the head of the Popish party in the city, repeatedly attacked Farel with great violence of language in the Council, and threatened that if a stop was not put to his preaching, the people would lay violent hands on him.*

Farel wasn’t beloved by everyone…  Surprising, I know.
