I was intrigued and perturbed by the reading on 5th February from Mark chapter 1.
It was one of those 'in passing' moments, where one thinks, 'Wait a minute!' Simon Peter's mother in law was healed by Jesus, and then got up to serve him and his friends.
I'm not sure I've ever heard a sermon on this episode, but I was delighted to see a recent post from Nancy Wallace, via the Big Bible project. You can read the rest here: http://bigbible.org.uk/2012/02/strengthened-to-serve-simon-peters-mother-in-law/
And as so often, when we read about women in the New Testament, there is more than meets the eye!
