Miriam and Deborah are strong women leaders and prophets of the Old Testament. Both have authority to speak to God's people with conviction, and Jael plays a prominent role in carrying out Deborah's prophetic word. These women represent the kinds of full participation possible for women in the church when individuals and communities move toward right relationships.

In the midst of lament, it can be difficult for us to believe that healing is possible. This story about a bleeding woman and a sick girl moves from lament toward healing, revealing that God hears our cries, cares deeply for our pain, and offers the possibility for new life. This is a story of hope and assurance.
