A Woman's Work

As a woman studying and preparing to be an ordained and licensed minister, I realize that I will encounter many closed doors and latent discrimination because of my sex as a female.

As soon as it was night, the believers sent Paul and Silas away to Berea. On arriving there, they went to the Jewish synagogue.  Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what […]
