Dear ...?

Jephthah’s daughter@judges11-12.bible.now

Dear ...?

Already here I am reminded that I do not know your name. It happens often, not just in the Bible, but through history. Names are forgotten, left out. More…

Dear Jotham

Jothamathidingplace@ophra.then 

Dear Jotham,

Until recently you have been a rather unknown name to me, and from the horrible account in Judges 9 I understand that we could have lost…

Dear Gideon,

Finally, after reading about you so many times I get this opportunity to send you some lines.

I first met you when I was…

Dear Deborah

CC: womeninthebookofJudges@bible.now

Dear Deborah,

I hope this email over time and space doesn’t find you too busy. I am actually impressed by the description that you as a leader used to sit under the palm tree. Most leaders in my context today seem to be always on the move,…

Urgent need of mentorship

Nehemiah@buildingupJerusalem.then

 

Dear Nehemiah,

 

You have always been an inspiration to me and many others in leadership. Even today I remember an invited speaker taking us through your story. I thought I knew it,…

Meeting Jesus in hectic leadership

Marthainthekitchen@Bethany.then

Dear Martha,

Hope this email finds you well and not too busy.

I’ve recently been talking to some friends about that day when Jesus came to visit you (Luke 10:38-42). Things must have been very hectic indeed - and your sister Mary for one reason or another just decided to sit down to listen to Jesus.

Many of us share your frustration. I think we all have "both a Martha and a Mary…

Learning from Miriam

Dear Miriam, miriam@steeringgroup.desert.then

It is high time for me to be brave enough to send you some lines over time and space – inspired by the stories I read about you in the Bible. You might have seen the leadership issues I shared with your brother Moses some time back. Perhaps I should have copied you into the message as you were a core part of…

Spectacular or commonplace miracles

Dear Moses, moses@desert.then

I have just reached the point in Exodus 18 where I see you happily waving farewell to your father-in-law, right after he had brutally (but hopefully politely enough) criticised the way you were doing your work. I often come back to this story and share it with tired and disillusioned leaders today. I ask them ‘What would a Jethro…

What about the women?

Dear Moses (moses@burningbush.then),

Let me take this opportunity to write to you over time and space, hoping to reach you right there at the burning bush. I have often used this burning bush story to talk about leadership. I was so impressed that you realised so clearly that you could not do it on your own. God opened your eyes to your brother Aaron. But allow me to ask one thing:

 

Did you ever talk about the five brave women…
