Beth Demme Blog Leave a Comment

In Episode 37, Steph and Beth celebrate Beth’s Seminary graduation by talking about gender and calling. They share their experiences as women in male-dominated fields and how they handle internet trolls. They also have an honest conversation about the fact that some denominations do not allow women to preach and teach. Why is Beth a pastor even though the Bible says at 1 Timothy 2:12 that women can’t be pastors? Is Beth ignoring the Bible? Beth shares her experiences as a female pastor, including encounters with those who deny her calling (she also explains why it’s called a “calling”). In this episode, you’ll also learn who Junia was and why she matters to anyone who wants to take the Bible seriously.
