"The article on women priests ['Young women priests face issues of age and gender', March 2014, pp. 6-7] reminded me of the debates about the ordination of women. The article's central theme was sociological and cultural challenges, which, echoing the earlier debates precluded any thoughtful reflection on the theological difficulties of ordaining women to the apostolic ministry. As long as we approach issues facing the church only through the lens of sociology and culture, and neglect the witness of scripture, tradition and the church beyond the borders of Canada, we will continue to become isolated within the Anglican Communion and the catholic world of east and west to which we belong by faith and tradition. .... The radical equality of men and women found in the gospel and rejoicing in the differences that each gender brings to dynamic ministry is lost. If we allow our beloved church to be dominated by the society and culture of the moment, we are in danger of losing our very reason for existence".
