Recently I had a conversation with a neighbor who suggested that my being in seminary was “something to keep me busy.” I asked if that was some kinda bad joke and got the response, “well, I just figured it was your new hobby.”
To my credit, I did not offer a string of “colorful metaphors” or make any um…. “anatomically impossible suggestions” in response. But boy… Go figure!! I wonder why the heck people say stuff like that.
A NEW HOBBY????
Can we still not accept that women are also available to be Called by God? That we too are able to study and prepare for vocational ministry??? If I were male, would I get this kinda claptrap? Somehow, I don’t think so…
