Links from the Sermon

Thinking about the issue of freedom, read this:

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”

Thinking about Harriet Tubman, read more:

Thinking about our Biblical Heroines, read these:

Healing is the name of the game in the New Testament. And nowhere is that theme better captured than by the spirit of the last female to speak in the Bible, otherwise known as the fortune-telling girl (Acts 16:16-19).

Who exactly was she? Most people haven’t heard of her. Her name was never mentioned in scripture, she was a slave, and Luke, the physician, says she was demon-possessed. Talk about the lowest of the low, especially in tough biblical times.

Finally…a book that documents and explores the words and life story of every woman in the Bible who spoke. Meticulously researched, lovingly narrated, and award-winning, Bible Women: All Their Words and Why They Matter invites readers to walk alongside their spiritual grandmothers and great-grandmothers, exploring all their words and contributions to biblical and world history.
