Reflection Questions:

  1. I dare you to read the entire gospel of Luke this week, and every time a woman is mentioned send a text message to your shepherding elder telling him one impression you had about the woman.
  2. Have you been personally and deeply impacted by the staggering forgiveness and liberation of Jesus? If so, how does it result in radical devotion to Christ in your everyday life?
  3. God liberates people and commands them to be as wise as serpents and as innocent as doves. As you ponder the lives of radically faithful followers of Jesus (like Joanna and Harriet Tubman), how will you invest more shrewdly (like a serpent) in the subversive work of God’s Kingdom before you die?
