GOD'S WOMEN: JEPHTHAH'S DAUGHTER

Imagine this – a father makes an oath and this oath results in the murder of his daughter! This Old Testament story appears in the Book of Judges!

As he has been doing for each of God’s Women in this series, Fr. Mike tells the background history  setting the story in the context of the time. Jephthah, a leader of the Jewish army, was asked to go against the enemy forces of the Ammonites. He bargained with God and took an oath that if he won against these formidable enemies, he would sacrifice the first person who came out of his tent. 

You can guess what happened! We don’t even know his daughter’s name. Fr. Mike shows how this sad turn of events leads us to question such an understanding of God. He shows the two extremist views of the image of God and challenges us to ask ourselves about our own image of God. He poses other challenging questions arising from this story.

EVERYTHING BORROWED with Dinah Patton
​​​​​​​
When Jesus comes into your life, radical things can happen. A radical call might come – perhaps to go around the world and share your love!

This is what happened to Dinah Patton. In this energetic interview by Fr. Mike, Dinah tells the story of her own conversion and healing. She was not a believer at the beginning – actually for many years. Until one day…

People thought she had gone berserk. She had really been healed. (At this moment in the interview, Dinah sings Everything Borrowed.)

From then on things really began to happen. She was invited around the world to tell her story – Indonesia, Africa, Korea, etc. Her prayer was : “Send me…I’m willing.”
There is a wonderful story of a little boy in Korea that you won’t want to miss!
