New Lutheran Quote of the Day

In the church there are no autonomous persons with sovereign power and individual rights.  Rather, we have a community that is characterized by willing subordination.  Subordination is normal and natural.  People who all equally and fully share the same status as children of God in Christ are all called to be subordinate in some way under Christ.  -- Dr. John Kleinig, Women Pastors?, p. 223.
