Did you know that there are ordained women in the Southern Baptist Convention? Churches are autonomous, and despite the very conservative swing the SBC has taken in recent years, some churches ordain women. I got a call from Jennifer, a former student of mine at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. We talked for most of an hour this morning. She wants me to preach at her ordination service at a church near Richmond sometime in late September or early October. It will be a wonderful time of celebration--and a little vacation for us as we visit some sites in nearby Williamsburg and Washington D.C.
