Rising Trend Shows Women Are Moving into Ministry By George Corell NEW YORK (AP) — Women arc crowding the seminaries and moving increasingly intl* tho ordained ministry The number of women clergy in the United .States has gone up a third in the las! decade to a current total of about B.5IM) among the nation s more than 3(H),WHI clergy. But few of the women ministers — an estimated 111 percent — have become pasters or associate pastors of congregations The prospect is particularly clouded for (he ll women of the Episcopal church, ordained as its first priests last Monday by four bishops in defiance of church rules Quick restraints were clamped on their ministries. But in other churches, too, ordained women mostly are sidelined to supplementary tasks, such as chaplains, teachers or counselors in institutions By habit and attitude, congregations generally are reluctant to install women as pastors. Gaining Acceptance Gaining acceptance in thai role “is a very tough struggle for them," says Valerie Russell, executive director of the task force on women of the United Church of Christ, one of the first major LLS. denominations to ordain women. Its Congregationalists forebears began doing so more than a century ago. and the present merged denomination has about 350 women ministers — about 40 in pastorates — among its 9.400 clergy The largest — but proportionately smaller — number of women clergy is in the United Methodist church, which has 500 of them among more than 34,000 ordained personnel Like most major Protestant bodies, Methodists have accepted women for ordination only since the 1950s Some denominations, notably the Southern Baptists, the Lutheran Church in America and the American Lutheran Church, began allowing women regularly into clerical ranks only since the beginning of the 1970s. "It's definitely a rising trend, a pattern of our times," says Constant IL Jaequet. research director of the National Council of Churches. The pressure for it is acute in hold-out denominations, especially in the Episcopal church, where it ha. become a recurrent, narrowly resisted proposal in conventions. Demands for it also are simmering in the Roman Catholic church The Rev. Richard McBrien, of Weston. Mass., said as he stepped down recently as president of the Catholic Theological Society of America thai the time had come for church scholars to insist on women s admission to the priesthood. The call for it has increased among Catholic women’s organizations as well as among theologians, and I S bishops have a continuing study on it The Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches remain the main ( hristian bodies prohibiting ordination of women, along with Episcopal church so far as authorized practice goes. Women also still are excluded from ordination in two other major bodies — the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod and the Church of .Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormon). Broken Barriers However, across most of the ecclesiastical spectrum, the drive for women’s place in the ministerial corps — and in church leadershop roles generally — has broken down the past “male only" barriers. Women's situation in the church "is improving,” says Mrs. Russell. “So many more extremely capable women are knocking at the door." Seminary enrollment, a rarity for women until recently, now amounts to more than IO percent — 3,300 women among the 33,000 students in principal U.S. seminaries. In some of them. 45 to 50 percent of the seminarians are women. Even though women increasingly are being admitted to the ministry, they encounter special problems in being accepted as pastors. “Most of them, especially the unmarried ones, have had difficulty in finding a congregation,” reports the Rev. Elsie Gibson of Hartford. Conn., a United Church of ('brist minister, after a study of women’s ministerial experience. Church research specialist Jaequet points out that most Protestant churches are experiencing an over-supply of clergy, whic h makes the competition tougher for pastoral posts. “These jobs are very scarce,” he says, “lf it weren’t for the shortage, the chances for women would be much better." Nevertheless, the trend goes on. It all started in 1847 when Antoinette Brown, an Oberlin college student, sounded off in a campus debate about the rights of women in the ministry. She went on to seminary, even though her Congregational Church since merged into the United Church then excluded women from* the clergy. She started preaching anyhow, and finally, on Sept. 15, 1853, was ordained.

Mrs. Bevins By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: Is it true that some women are just not enc out to be mothers? Unfortunately, because of inadequate birth control methods, I find myself stuck with two kids Before I had them, I had a job I really enjoyed and I was free to come and go as I please without being at the mercy of babysitters. My husband and I are drifting apart He still has all the freedom he wants, hut I can't go with him. A lot of resentment has been building up inside of me these last four years Sometimes I actually hate my children for robbing me of my carefree life. You would think that any normal mother would love her children dearly, hut if I had only one* wish. it would be that I had been sterile. Wouldn't it be nice if all the women in the world who want children and can t have them could change places with those women (myself included) who don't want kids and could have a dozen? I’m not a child abuser, but I still resent my children. I’m not writing for advice because nobody can help me. It’s just something 1 11 have to live with. After all, it’s not their fault that they were born. Ifs mine. lf there were a book entitled “How to Learn to Love Unwanted Children" it would be just what I need. NAMELESS IN GA. DEAR NAMELESS: You’re not alone, but most mothers sharing your feelings would not admit (even to ‘hem-selves) that they feel that way. It would make them feel too guilty . Your letter makes an excellent ease for birth control. Every child deserves to be a wanted child. You can’t possibly feel this way without communicating your resenlment to your children. (You may not abuse them physically , hut you are depriving them emotionally.) To quote the late Lord Brain: “When, wherever you live in the world, you can have children only when you wish, that will be a revolution with more far-reaching effects on the pattern of human culture than the discovery of atomic energy." ★ it it Problems? You’ll feel better lf you get it off your chest. For a personal reply, write to ABBY. Box No H9700. Los Angeles. Calif. 90089. Enclose stamped, self-addressed envelope, please.
