On this week’s episode, we talk about God’s order in the context of single moms, while we also questions on women in ministry and how to interact in a healthy way with people of the opposite sex in the workplace.
Question 1: Charity Spicer from California
Hi, my name is Charity I am eleven. I am a worship leader in our church with my dad. I don’t understand this scripture:
1 Corinthians 14:34 “As in all the churches of the saints, the women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says. If there is anything they desire to learn, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church.”
Shouldn’t women be doing the same things as men do? Thanks for your podcasts I enjoy listening to them.
Question 2: Audio Question from Sherina from California.
Regarding single moms and how to apply God’s order in that context.
Question 3: On Interacting with the Opposite Sex at Work
My question has 2 parts – First, how do you interact productively with men in the work place in a way that honors them as brothers – for example, there are times when I need to work alone with a man who is married for extended periods of time. Additionally, how can women best interact with men in the work environment when they tend to be more passive? I find that most of the men that I work with are more passive than the females, and the women end up dominating in many areas. What can I do to empower men to rise up out of passivity? My strategy has been to wait to see if they will take the lead, to ask for help when I need it and to accept help when it is offered, but beyond this I’m not really sure. I do end up just leading/doing the task myself, because it seems like it won’t get done if I don’t!
