Sisters in Christ, Mothers in Israel
I commend unto you Phebe our sister, which is a
servant of the church which is at Cenchrea: That ye
receive her in the Lord, as becometh saints, and
that ye assist her in whatsoever business she hath
need of you: for she hath been a succourer of many,
and of myself also.-- Romans 16:1-2
The inhabitants of the villages ceased, they ceased
in Israel, until that I Deborah arose, that I arose a
mother in Israel.-- Judges 5:7
