Question time.
"Man and Woman as the image and glory of God (1 Corinthians 11)"
 Margaret Mowczko2

Marg Mowczko is a writer and occasional speaker with an interest in the theology, the social context, and the women of the apostolic church.

She strongly believes that if we are in Christ we are part of the New Creation and part of a community where old social paradigms of hierarchies and caste or class systems have no place (2 Cor. 5:17Gal. 3:28).

Marg has a BTh from the Australian College of Ministries and an MA with a specialisation in early Christian and Jewish studies from Macquarie University. Her essay on Phoebe of Cenchrea (Rom. 16:1-2) was published in December 2018 by Mohr Siebeck in the book, Deacons and Diakonia in Early Christianity: The First Two Centuries.
