Yoder: No One Ungifted

Thanks to Dave Wainscott for recently posting this excellent quote from John Howard Yoder:

There are as many ministerial roles as there are members of the body of Christ, and that means that more than half of them belong to women. The transformation that Paul’s vision calls for would not be to let a few more especially gifted women share with a few men the rare roles of domination; it would be to reorient the notion of ministry so that there would be no one ungifted, no one not called, no one not empowered, and no one dominated. Only that would live up to Paul’s call to 'lead a life worthy of our calling.'
