Her words give great insight into what she believes about the balance between her role in government and the church’s role to minister to people and how it all works together for the good of Alaska (and, though she doesn’t mention it, the USA as a whole).
The other interesting aspect of being a woman in government is that of headship. There has been a lot of blogging this week about whether or not it’s biblical for women to be in positions of authority over men. Palin refers to herself as a woman under the authority of her church even as she is governor of her state. So, while she is in authority over her state, she recognizes that that does not carry over to her position/role in the church. Interesting stuff.
Take a listen!
