June 14, 2010: Deception and trickery

Posted on : Jun 14th, 2010 | By | Category: Still Speaking

Last week we started a new series following the faith journeys of women in Scripture. We took a peek at one of the nameless women in Scripture, a Canaanite woman – an outsider. This week we will take a closer look at a woman who was even more suspect: an outsider and one who was involved in an act of sexual impropriety. Her name was Tamar. If you have never heard of her before, I would not be surprised – pastors have a tendency to avoid her story when choosing a text to preach on. It’s a shame – her story is both radical and profound. invoicing homely.
