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.
