Any form of church government which tends deliberately or otherwise to place men in a position of pre-eminence is contrary to God’s purpose. We conclude that, while the principles of vv 11,12 would apply in church meetings, they are not limited to there. (We will see that this differs from the context of 1 Cor. 14:34,35, which does refer to assemblies of the whole church and teaches that women should be silent and not even speak.) The passage teaches women to learn in silence, with all submission, not teaching over men.

While there are “black” parishes looking for black rectors, there are no “woman” parishes looking for women rectors; on the other hand, the large pool of “assistant” jobs in suburban parishes is more available to women than to blacks, though it is wide open only to white males. These leaders are marked by compassion and integrity and are approachable and teachable.
