#herstory: Tamar and Justice

For the Advent season, we are following the theme, “From These Roots,” as we trace the lineage given in the Gospel According to Matthew and especially listen to the #herstory of the four women who are listed there. Today’s sermon is about Tamar, a woman caught in a patriarchal system and betrayed by the one on whom she was dependent. Tamar struggles for justice and comes away victorious.
