Women: Change Makers (Sevika Sangham week)
The greeting in Paul’s letter to the Romans (16:1-6) is an outpouring of his love towards all the saints; most notable among them were women. Paul identifies the lasting contributions that these women made on his personal life and the church. Some of these women were called “helpers”, some served as leaders, some extended hospitality and some others even risked their lives for the mission of spreading the gospel. These women were faithful to the call that God had placed in their life even if society (at the time) did not consider their place or role as significant as men. Their faithfulness was instrumental in laying the foundation of the church.
