Holy Week: Follow the Calling of Jesus

By Mike Sherrill
Tuesday, March 30, 2021

As Women's History Month winds down, let's remember that roughly one-third of those listed in the Martyr's Mirror are women – clearly demonstrating the central involvement of women in the Anabaptist movement. 

During Holy Week, let us remember to keep our focus on the salvation directly in front of us, and not to stray from the path as the Holy Spirit blazes a trail for us into covenant with Jesus, just like our scripture readings this week say (Proverbs 4:25-27, Hebrews 10:11-14).
