Ricky Dillard may be known for being a renowned choral master, but now the veteran recording artist is taking a stand in the debate about women's place in church.
Dillard, 50, took to his social media page recently to invite people to participate in the conversation about women placed in leadership positions within the church. The choir director took to Facebook to question if people should revisit the notion that women cannot act as pastors in some churches that uphold traditional values.
"Why are women able to run the house, in the absence of a male, care for & raise the children, work & pay bills, but not allowed to pastor, preach & often times SERVE in many churches? Do we need to revisit this," Dillard wrote on his Facebook page. "Is it still appropriate? I'm just asking. What say ye? #RealTalkWithRicky." more >>

The Need You Now singer appears on the cover draped in green feathers with poetic text framing her face. Plumb wrote the copy out in her own handwriting for the cover art.
"We do not exist for us but to share the grace and love given to us all./We breathe it in, it changes us, and then we breathe it out, we share it./I have now breathed in deeply and it has changed me completely./It has healed my heart, restored my home and made me new./Because of that grace, there is always hope. It's oxygen./Breathe it in…and then EXHALE," the text reads. more >>
