Look What Women Can Do When They #gohome

The most comprehensive silencing of women in the church 

occurred the day we threw out the hymnals,

not the day a respected pastor was finally bold enough to confront

an out-of-line-female-false-teacher with the now-famous-words, “go home.”

Here are 40 of my favorite hymns by 30 female authors 

whose treasured words were sounded by 4 centuries of saints,

until our generation of egalitarians silenced their voices.

I’ve linked as many as possible to youtube for your listening enjoyment.
