5 minutes with Mary ...
Tell us a little about you I started following Jesus in 1972 while a journalist for The Courier Mail. I moved overseas in 1977 living in China, the USA, the UK for a little under 30 years. I returned to Australia in 2005. I love being among the nations. I love study. I love encouraging the coming generations.
What's your favourite bible passage & why?
Genesis 1-3 and John 19-20. Understood well in their cultural and literary context they are radical challenges to a fallen status quo. They are simply brilliant pieces of revelation - simply astounding.
How do you keep your eyes fixed on Jesus?
I seek to encounter every person as potentially imaging Jesus and I read a huge amount.
What would you like the next generation of Christian women to know?
That Jesus reversed the patriarchy of the Fall. He sent a woman to be the first witness to his resurrection, to New Creation. John 20 simply is astounding.
