Meetup: Silent in the Churches? (CBE)

Christians for Biblical Equality's Greater Boston Chapter will hold their next meetup at First Baptist Church in Jamaica Plain. Discussion will focus on the statement "Women should remain silent in the churches" in 1 Corinthians 14:34, which is often used to justify excluding women from prominent church roles, including preaching. However, a closer look shows that, just a few chapters earlier, women are affirmed for speaking up and prophesying (1 Cor 11:5-6). What's up with that? We'll take a close look at this passage and discuss. We'll also spend some time praying together. Coffee and muffins will be provided.
