Yesterday, I took the day away from this discipline because it was International Womxn's Day and I was doing small things to participate in a day without a woman. It got me thinking: What would the Bible like without women?
Basically, it wouldn't exist.
There is the obvious point that without Eve there would be no humans in the story. But there are so many other women who made the story possible. So many, named and unnamed, without whom the story would have ended before it ever got to Jesus Christ.
For today, we focus on Miriam. Prophet, midwife, dancer, water bringer.
Listen to the day's meditation below.
