The Episcopal church (and the Anglican one) read through a lectionary in three year cycles. They've recently revised it, partly in order to highlight stories of women in the Bible. So today, for the first time in the lectionary, we read the story of Tabitha/Dorcas who Peter raises from the dead. She was a woman who took care of the widows in the church, sewing clothes for them, so when she got sick and died, there was a lot of grief. When Peter hears about it, he goes into the room where they've laid her out, and takes her hand, and she lives again. (Acts 9:36-43).
I'm looking forward to hearing about other women in the weeks to come.
