God of Ruth, Elizabeth and Mary
Words: Lindy Thompson, 2017
Music: CWM RHONDDA; John Hughes, 1907
Lindy Thompson offers this hymn, which speaks of God's love and justice through the example of courageous women from the Bible. Thompson's vivid imagery places us in the footsteps of these women and calls us to "wake... to the stirring of [God's] Spirit." This hymn would be ideal to sing any time in worship, but it may be particularly poignant during Women's History Month (March) or any time the ministry of women is celebrated.
