Last night, John was reading to me that the PCA is thinking of allowing women to be deacons. Since I don't really know the history of deacons and deaconesses, I decided to search it and see what I could find out about it.
I came across a very interesting article about the difference of having women deacons (meaning they are in authority over men of the church) or having women as deaconesses (meaning they are not in authority over men).
Unfortunately, the latter is not what is being proposed within the PCA. I truly hope that this proposal does not get passed.
