Some of you have asked me for some documentation, here are a few links.

Jonathan Lindvall states that hc leaders must be homeschooling fathers and their wives may not work outside the home (considered ruling his family well)

Steve Atkerson:  Apostolic tradition is binding upon all churches in all ages and cultures, i.e, meeting on Sunday, head coverings for women, full-meal Lord's supper (now I like this one, getting together for a meal, but it doesn't need to be a command)  

He also states that brothers should be free to bring a teaching, question a speaker, suggest a song.  The implication here is that a woman cannot, the women prepare the food and the men prepare what to say, but maybe I am misunderstanding.

Nope, I was not misunderstanding.

Ladies do not speak out or pray publicly in the 1Co 14 meeting (yes, we know this is hard to believe, but look up 1Co 14:33-35 and you'll see where this comes from). In contrast, the sisters do speak quite a bit during the fellowship of the Lord's Supper!

House Church Talk is sponsored by the House Church Network.

House Church Talk has been renamed. These discussions, via the web, now occur at the Radically Christian Cafe.
