Woman Empowered

by Daphine L. Strickland

For the Easter Season

"Woman Empowered" is a skit about Mary Magdalene based on John 20: 1-18. It can be performed at Easter services. It is meant to show that Jesus honored women when he appeared to Mary before he appeared to the twelve disciples.


I was there looking
At him, hanging there
On the cross. He had been
Beaten so badly that I hardly
Recognized Him. I just stood there.
