A Woman's Worth

By Nell Sunukjian Sep. 30, 2014 10:45 a.m. Culture, Marriage and Family, Ministry and Leadership

... The culture was restless in the ‘60s. And that restlessness was present in the church, too. Women lined up on both sides of the raging debates about the identity and purpose and worth of a woman—debate issues such as, a woman should be in the home rearing her children or a woman should be educated and in the work force; or, a woman is different from a man or a woman is just like a man.
