Heroettes

(Sorry for the new word, but I think English can do better than heroine.  Sounds like a drug.)  Many, most? of the heros of the Christian faith are women.  It needs to be spoken given years of discrimination.  (We are still less than 100 years from women being able to vote in this nation! Other nations are worse.)  Our text this week tells of  Hulduh. (2 Chronicles 34) It is significant how “without fanfare” the scripture refers to her as a prophetess.  An innocent, biblical perspective on this capacity to know God and speak His word to others.   A gift from God that has NOTHING to do with gender.  Jesus had the same attitude re. prayer.  In Luke 18 when the Lord wanted to illustrate “persevering prayer” he told about a woman who was finally heard because she would not give up.  May the Lord send thousands!  The Kingdom is well served by women who speak to God and then speak for God.  I will see you Sunday.  Should be interesting. . .Don
