Thought for the Day: In my sermon this morning, I focus on Priscilla who is, in my opinion, one of the great early followers of Jesus, yet I have only modest Biblical proof for making that statement. In Romans, Paul offered a couple of very affirming statements about Priscilla (Prisca) and her husband, but without a lot of detail. The stories of her bold faith were conceived mostly within my imagination, though I feel confident that my imaginative faculties underestimated all she did. These formulated stories are rooted in the real-life stories of women I have known, starting with my grandmother who lived a bold faith and mother is living a bold faith. Maybe I imposed a little of them on what I envisioned Priscilla to be…but it’s because I believe they both had a little Priscilla in them.
Prayer: Holy Lord, Holy Light, provide us the capacity to see the bold faith of so many who have chosen to follow in the ways of Jesus. Amen.
