Nympha, Lydia and Mary

I wonder how you do with sharing?

We know very little about these three women. They are often overlooked; 'invisible' in the biblical story but what they model to us about courage, sacrifice and above all hospitality is really challenging. At a time when so many in the world are desperate for refuge and need help, Nympha, Mary and Lydia are among those from the first century who might inspire us to think about how to steward all God has blessed us with in a really practical way.
