    I suppose. Unless the word nun isn't biblical. Then it doesn't matter.

    The word Nun isn't Biblican and the word Priest is. I'm not a Catholic but I have witnessed many good works by humble Nuns and heard of some not so Biblical things done by Priest.. I hope these Nuns would teach to love the homosexual but hate the sin. And we know Jesus didn't come seekng believers but un-believers, he visied folks that embaressed His followers. When you give a person understanding and love when they havent seen it before, it has far reaching effects.

    There are lots of words that aren't biblical that matter in Christian circles. Thats silly.

    I hope I didn't sidetrack the discussion. Apologies. :)

    Basically if the word nun is used only for good, then perhaps they weren't behaving nun like.

    or

    If they are "undermining" Roman Catholic teachings, perhaps they are not Roman Catholic nuns.

    or perhaps they simply got sidetracked.

    The word "nun" comes from "nona," the Italian word for grandmother. I heard that in a sermon once.

    In medieval times, widowed women whose children were grown sometimes became sisters, and in more recent centuries many even founded orders (Elizabeth Ann Seton, for example).

    The older women with grown children who become sisters today are following a time-honored tradition. Vocations don't always come at age 20. They can come at age 30, or 40, or 50. My friend's mom entered the convent when she was 59 or so, and spent happy years in pastoral ministry and religious education (she died last year).

    I think that's really cool.

    Michie, a lot of things changed back in the 60's, more than just William Colulson and Carl Rogers. Men of all denominations suddnly found a way out of the war, going to school to be a Minister. I can't help but wounder if all those guys were called for the office or looking for a way out.
