Unsung Heroes of the Faith
It is not easy to go against any established order, whether it is political, economic, or social. This Sunday, we will reflect on a story of two women, midwives, Shiphrah and Puah, committing acts of civil disobedience. They defy the Egyptian king’s order to kill all Hebrew newborn baby boys. These two powerless women courageously breathes together to give life rather than death. They are mothering agents bearing witness to the mothering power of God! They gave a powerful picture of who God is. God is the God who has the back of the lowly and powerless and a life giver. O breath of God, fall afresh on us today. Amen.
Come friends, we will hear more about these two unsung heroes of faith in worship!
