Dear Friends

This Sunday at Prince of Peace we celebrate the Women of the ELCA! All of our Sunday bible texts are about women.

Many of you probably named your daughters after famous women in the Bible. You know Mary, Ruth, Sarah etal. But besides those famous women, there are many who are unnamed: the text will say: a woman......the woman.....or the women. And in the story of Jesus Feeding the 5000. The number 5000 does not include the women and the children.

When this plethora of unnamed women became apparent to me and when I learned they were not counted in the 5000, I began paying more attention. When do the women show up? Who are they? What are their stories? When are they named?

So In Exodus 1, we hear about Shiphrah and Puah. (I don't think you named your daughters these names) 4 verses and we learn of how they saved the nation of Israel. Come and hear!


Be well, be safe!


Pastor Nan
