Critical Articles About Women in Office in the GKV

23 January 2017 by Wes Bredenhof

As regular readers of this blog know, the Reformed Churches in the Netherlands are currently wrestling with the issue of women in office.  There is a report going to their next synod advocating for it.  This report is now available in English here.  Naturally, there are members of these churches excited about the possibility of admitting women to all the church offices.  However, we should not be left with the impression that everyone is on board with it.  There have been Dutch voices, inside and out of the GKV, that are critical of these developments.  The website Werken aan Eenheid has a collection of links to articles critical about women in office — you can find it here.   Of course, it’s in Dutch, but for English-only readers there’s always Google Translate to give you a rough idea of what you’re looking at.
