Kleinig, John W. The Ministry of the Spirit. Lutheran Theological Journal 36.1 (2002): 25-37

The Lutheran Church of Australia has been engaged in discussion on whether women may be ordained into the office of the public ministry. This question, however, presupposes that there is agreement on two even more basic theological issues. It assumes that there is such an office of ministry, and that the rite of ordination places a person into that office.


Doxology provides a safe environment for clergy to reflect on their own spiritual and emotional health and assists them to review and enhance their professional competencies and skills as servants of Christ and stewards of God’s sacred mysteries.
