The Ordination of Women

We urge you, brethren, admonish the unruly, encourage the fainthearted,
help the weak, be patient with everyone. (1 Thessalonians 5:14)

Those who wish to follow the present discussion about women’s ordination in the Anglican Church in North America will need to be current with what is being written. This page offers a series of documents that will be helpful in following the discussion.

This discussion is no mere abstruse aspect of theology. It is central to our view of God’s creation of male and female, their relationships to each other, and even the nature and character of God himself. In this sense, the discussion is more impactful than most likely recognize.

Be assured that the clergy of St. John’s uniformly hold to the doctrine and practice of the undivided church regarding this matter. Any of the clergy would be glad to discuss any of these matters with you.

If you don’t know where to start and don’t wish to read the 600+ pages available below, we recommend those listed with an asterisk (*).
