But women can do lots of other things to exercise their priestly duties.
What stops them from having ladies bible classes, where each of them are asked in turns to lead a study. They can choose to study using a particular study book or not. But this is a way to study the bible and express one's thoughts/doubts. This is also a wonderful forum for being more vocal.
What about having classes or studies with those older women who are knowledgable in certain scriptural portions...like attend a seminar etc.
I know of ladies who make it a point to visit everyone in the congregation, help out those in need, pray with those in need or turmoil, encourage those in need etc. This requires a sacrificial attitude and more than that love for our fellow believer in Christ.
In our church, we also have small bible classes in groups where we study a portion together with men, not at churches but at homes...we study about God's design for families, about the church, doctrines, the role of the Holy spirit, raising children etc. where both men and women contribute ideas/thoughts and pray.
Older women spend time with the younger ones, talking and praying with them about life, family, children, being women. You could find out the various gifts of some women, who are able to connect better with growing girls and have classes to channel them towards being Godly women later on in lives. Someone who can talk to them about their growing needs/ problems etc. in a confidentail manner.
I know of many women who also evangelize to their friends and neighbours and tell them about our belief. Through their actions, deeds, words etc. they proclaim Christ to the unbelievers who watch them.
The possibilities are endless. But it requires thinking outside the box, understanding what God wants from you, letting the Holy spirit use your spiritual gift the best way He can, submiting it all in the Lord's hands in prayer, accepting womanhood in all it's entirety etc.
As men you can certainly channel your wives/daughters to think about it
