Sexism In Church!

Happy Sunday everyone, and Mothers Day too!
another short randomie

I was in church today, during the praise and worship, then it dawned on me…….. how come the instrumentalists are always (well mostly) guys? Can’t women play instruments? And how come all (or most) of the choir members and worship leaders and soloists are always women? I know for a fact there are plenty of guys who sing in church, and very well too. This isn’t just in my church here, thinking about it, most, if not all the churches I’ve attended in the last 10 years , actually all my life have this structure going on. The most ironic thing being I saw more of an even spread of both sexes doing each thing in church in Nigeria while on holiday.

The conclusion is men are scared to sing and women are scared to play instruments!
