Easter Jesus

John 20:11-16 Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot. They asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?” “They have taken my Lord away,” she […]

Women of Lent: All that she had

Her story is told in two of the Gospels, but she never interacts with Jesus or his disciples. She may not have even noticed them . She simply slipped into the temple, offered these two coins as an offering, and left. She probably was ashamed of what little she had to give. As Jesus was […]

Does Jesus reach out to us or do we reach out to Jesus? Yes.

Women of Lent: Unclean

  What would it mean to make the son of God “unclean”? I can’t believe there’s only a little over a week left in Lent. I have so enjoyed studying and learning from the women that Jesus interacted with during his time on earth, but we’re running out of time and there are still so […]

Women of Lent: Do Whatever He Tells You

During advent, I wrote a popular series on my old blog called “Women of Advent” about the women who waited with expectation for the promised Messiah, the women who inhabited the meaning of advent. Someone recently suggested that I do a similar series for the next-most-popular season in the church calendar, Lent. I’ve been doing […]
