This week Nicki Newell continues our ‘Visible Women’ series and looks at the Scripture of the Week found in Mark 5. In the story we see a woman who has had an issue with bleeding for 12 years, she has been to every doctor and quack – exhausting every option to become well. She is seen as unclean and a social outcast by community. Jesus is surrounded by the crowd, she fights her way through thinking ‘if I can only touch the hem of his clothes’. Nicki unpacks the story and leaves us with the question ‘What can we learn about faith from this woman?
During her talk Nicki referenced and recommended the book; ‘Inspired’ by Rachel Held Evans, which can read about here.
