INDIANAPOLIS, IN, US, February 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Rev. Jay Lawlor comments in a blog post about women marching in resistance to oppression. "A wonderful movement of women who are speaking up, speaking out, and taking action for justice," writes the Rev. Lawlor. He continues by stating "The women marching now remind me of women who marched and were part of a movement over 2,000 years ago. Women marched with Jesus."

The Rev. Jay Lawlor states how women were an integral part of the Jesus movement in its earliest days, and that often these facts have been lost, even suppressed, over the course of Christian history. "And women were not just casual participants in the Jesus movement. [...] Women were disciples of Jesus in every way." The Rev. Lawlor writes of the dynamic roles women played as disciples of Jesus and in establishing the Early Church.

While women had been later marginalized, the Rev. Jay Lawlor celebrates the fact women are able to exercise ordained leadership in the Episcopal Church, as well as some other Christian denominations. "Women are serving as bishops, priests, and deacons across the Episcopal Church," writes the Rev. Lawlor. He concludes by stating "Women marched with Jesus and helped lead the Jesus movement. Women march. Women lead. Women change the world. Amen and thanks be to God."
