Watching Aljazeera news this morning, I came across this story from India. The stories of these women remind me that the spirit of religion is still very strong in our world. So in the spirit of love and also One Billion Rising, take a moment to remember and pray for the women out there who are today being condemned as witches.
Why are women so often the targets of hatred and oppression in the world? I believe it is because women represent the image of the Holy Spirit…and treating women as an equal: honored and loved and valued, well that would start a wave of love that Satan cannot bare to see. If you want to see the Spirit move in your life, stand up for love. Love does no wrong to its neighbor. Christ and the Holy Spirit working together in the world, that’s what we want to see; man and woman working together–that’s where we need to grow. Love your neighbor as yourself.
