The Deaconess Discussion

In the pilgrimage of the Christian faith there will be many issues that we as a church have to discuss. One will be the manner in which we organize ourselves till we inherit our Promise Land in full. Who will be speaking for Christ? Who will serve the church? The office of Deacon is an office that has come under much discussion within the last century and still continues. Some have decided that women can serve in this office some have said no. I found some videos done by Ron Gleason, Ph. D. which I found helpful as he discusses the issue of Deaconesses from his position (he does not recognize women serving in the office as a valid interpretation of Scripture).
