Barbara Lundblad "Do You See This Woman?" In Lutheran Women in Ordained Ministry, 1970-1995. ed. Gloria E. Bengtson. Minneapolis: Augsburg Fortress 1995

Jesus asks this question to Simon at the dinner party interrupted by an unnamed woman (Luke 7). The question also refers to my experience preaching in a congregation years ago. A woman who had never heard another woman preach told me she has prepared herself by saying, “Just close your eyes and maybe you can forget it‘s a woman is preaching.”
