You still have a voice.
But most importantly it is a story about a woman who, even when she is told she has not place, knows that she has a voice because she is nothing more and nothing less than a child of God. We all have a voice that we can use for God's good, to build up and encourage, to speak out when we see the Kin-dom of Heaven come near.
God gives everyone a voice.
Yesterday we had our big Back to School blast event when we provide school supplies and clothes and backpacks and fun to our neighbors. Some of our church members were both clients and volunteers at that event. And that's how we usually roll at this church. When we are limited by age or disease, by economic condition or by being told over and over that we have no place at the table, we still remember that we have a voice. And that comes not from the world but from God which means it can't be taken away.
