Women Elders When?


Brother C. C. Morgan sends us the Committee announcement of the Broadway Church of Christ, Lubbock, Texas. It is quite a multiple committee set-up. The women are given the lead over the men on these committees. It begins by stating that "The elders and G. C. Brewer, the minister, are members of all committees."

But it leaves the other minister, E. Gaston Collins, out. On the letterhead it lists "G. C. Brewer and E. Gaston Collins, ministers." But on this announcement it states that G. C. Brewer, the minister, is on "all committees."

On the finance committee there are thirty-six women and twenty-one men. It is stated that the deacons are "members" of the finance committee. That is remarkable, and deserves special mention, that deacons of the church should be "members" of the church's finance committee. But that thirty-six women and twenty-one men of the finance committee—what Brother Morgan wants to know is "When will they start having women elders?" Ask "G. C. Brewer, the minister" Brother Morgan. He can answer it in the Gospel Advocate in a series of articles, if they will give him two or three pages to each article. It takes that much time and space for him to answer questions that us plain gospel preachers can answer on a post card.
