"I DON’T THINK there is a place for me at the table,” a young woman told me a number of years ago. She was talking about how she felt in her Church.
Her comment has haunted me. The image I have of Jesus from the Gospels is of one who went out of his way to welcome women at the table and in his ministry. Read against the backdrop of first-century, Middle Eastern, Judaic culture, Jesus’ words and actions are strikingly inclusive.
