What My Grandmothers Taught Me: Learning from the Women in Matthew’s Genealogy of Jesus

By Merryl Blair

Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary—Matthew names these women for a reason. How might Jesus have heard the stories of his grandmothers? What might the young Jesus have felt, as he heard about his family? What might the stories of these women have added to his sense of identity, as part of a particular family in a particular time and place? And what can Jesus’s grandmothers-of-the-faith teach us? By exploring these stories together, we will have a richer idea of what the good news is.

Fellowship of the Least Coin

(Donation collected at each circle meeting)

This is a worldwide ecumenical movement of prayer for peace and reconciliation conducted by United Church Women. PW circles support this on an individual basis. Our yearly collection is sent to our PW Presbytery Treasurer and then to the national office for worldwide grants.

The prayer: O Loving Creator, we present ourselves in your divine presence to thank you for all the bountiful gifts of life. We are especially grateful for the Fellowship of the Least Coin which binds us together in love and forgiveness around the globe. Free us from all doubts and prejudices, we pray. Inspire us to live in solidarity with humankind that we may know the joy of giving and receiving. Dear God, accept this least coin “token of love.” Make us mindful of the miracles of these coins. Let us honor your creation with love as shown through the life and resurrection of your son, Jesus the Christ, Amen.
