I am Thankful Women Can Now Serve on Church Councils

It has been another long hard day. I am extremely proud of Cheryl’s speech on the Assembly floor. It was the best of the week. I give her much credit for the passage of the motion for women to be able to serve on the council of the local church. I am blessed and thankful.

Is there a place (besides facebook - I'm not on facebook) to read the text of Cheryl Johns' speech? I listened to it twice on the live streaming archives. I was impressed with the speech. I too, grew up in a Pentecostal Holiness Church (and also Baptist) and am now in a Church of God.

Thanks. Someone has posted the speech on an online forum that I frequent, and I was able to read it there.
Sometimes that forum is not the friendliest place for the ideas that Dr. Cheryl Johns espouses, but varying opinions are usually allowed.
Here is the link should you be interested.
