...

The Antiochians also had women reading the Epistle and even giving homilies. Some were good, but I preferred that readers would read the Epistle and that priests would deliver the homilies.

My dad reads the Epistles sometimes at the Antiochian parish I grew up in when I have visited over the past few years.  He reads it like a Protestant and I have told him.  He can't sing and the concept just flies over his head.  He's 70 now and you just can't teach this old dog new tricks.  I tolerate it.

When the Church responsibly addresses the matter, your response will be helpful.  Until then, we still have some things to iron out.  Despite some appearances, we are not at liberty to just throw out all our standards like other Churches do.

Deacons can give homilies, too. It is one of their functions, both to read the Gospel and to preach it.

Yes, and I did enjoy hearing the young or not so young deacons preach.

If you live near a seminary, it is not uncommon to run into a service where one of the students is preaching - with supervision by his Homiletics prof....gotta learn somehow!
