Leaders? Ministers? Priests? The priesthood of all believers? Bishops?
How ordination and the status of the ordained is understood has often been a stumbling block in relations between the churches, and often gives expression to an understanding of the Church itself as it lives as a community. Whether gender is a criterion, whether and in what sense ‘apostolic succession’ is a viable consideration, whether the notion of ‘the priesthood of all believers’ is sufficient, and what authority ‘the Church has in relation to the individual conscience provide rich theological veins for study and debate.
