It is the leader who submits. The word submission has been used and misused by leaders to underwrite abuse and coercion in the church. In this episode Fitch and Moore propose that it is the leader who submits.
They explore biblical texts like Mark 10:42-45, Romans 12:3-8, Ephesians 5:21, and Hebrews 13 to explore how the act of submission by leaders is the way the Spirit leads a church into discernment.
