Sir: The Rev Robert Law tells us (Faith and Reason, 9 October) that 'women are not for ordination'. He illustrates his argument with the story of Miriam (Numbers 12), who sought a position of equal authority with Moses and Aaron. Apparently, God showed his displeasure by turning her into a leper.

Why not, therefore, resolve the issue of the ordination of women by allowing a few women volunteers to be ordained? If God is displeased, he will be able to make his point. If not, then the matter will be clarified.

Your faithfully,
