This week’s episode:
“Blessed are They”: Miriam, from the Book of Exodus and elsewhere. Find Miriam’s story in Exodus 15: 20,21; Numbers 12: 1, 4, 5, 10, 15; 20:1; 26:59; Deuteronomy 24:9; 1 Chronicles 6:3; Micah 6:4.
“Among Women” Guest: Marybeth Hicks
This week we look at taking a few moments to begin to prepare our hearts and our schedules for Lent.
In our “Blessed are They” segment, I look back into the Old Testament and talk about Miriam, Moses’ sister who helped to spare his life. It’s a neat story that reminds us that you never know how God is going to use our actions when we stand up for life.
Finally, in our “Among Women” segment, I’m pleased to welcome author-columnist Marybeth Hicks. Together we discuss her brand new blog “On the Culture” and ways to combat the moral relativism that continues to plague American life.
