INVITATION

IMPOSSIBLE!

WOMEN’S DIACONATE WORLDWIDE

APRIL 29, 2022 IN OSNABRÜCK AND ON LIVESTREAM

If the church wants to become sustainable worldwide, it must find a different approach to many issues. This is as obvious as it is urgent in the case of the diaconate for women, which has been demanded for a long time – from the USA to India! We are convinced that this change is possible. And it is indispensable.

Mark’s Gospel tells of a woman who anointed Jesus with precious oil in Bethany (Mark 14:3-9). This prophetically acting woman is a model for us. She sees before all others who Jesus is:
The anointed one who will change the world. We follow the biblical testimony: “Amen, I say to you: In all the world where the Gospel is proclaimed, what she has done will also be told in remembrance of her.” However, her courageous actions, prophetic understanding and spiritual power have been forgotten – as is the case with many women.

It is crucial to make the gifts and talents of women visible and effective throughout the world in order to develop the church in colorful and equal diversity. For this to happen, women must not only be heard and seen but also recognized and empowered through ordination.
