is it true that the writers of the WCF almost allowed women deacons?
This may help:
I'll need to find a citation, but I believe Rutherford and Gillespie argued that the women referenced in I Timothy 5 as the order of widows were a type of officers in the church. Calvin linked this order with deaconesses, but I don't think Rutherford and Gillespie did explicitly.
The paper I cited above has those references.
