Throughout…

    I am a Seventh-day Adventist Christian. Though a woman founded the denomination, Seventh-day Adventism has struggled to come to terms with how women should fill leadership roles. This past summer, church officials and delegates voted against allowing women to be ordained as ministers. As a female biblical studies student and Seventh-day Adventist, I am highly unusual. During my undergraduate years, a number of professors in my major department felt that I should not be studying with my male…
