June 7, 2010: The woman who changed Jesus’ mind.

Posted on : Jun 7th, 2010 | By | Category: Still Speaking

We start a new series today taking a closer look at faith journeys of the female kind in Scripture. What can I say, most of the stories in Scripture are about men (no surprise there – it came to be in a patriarchal culture). But here and there you find stories about women, and they are gems. Particularly interesting are the stories about the NAMELESS ones. You know – the anonymous women in Scripture, women whose stories we know so well, yet they are never identified by name: the woman Jesus meets at the well, the woman about to be stoned, the woman who anoints Jesus feet, and so on, and so on. They may be nameless, but they are full of spunk, and they do not allow themselves to be boxed in. form 2106 instructions homely.
