069 Terese Talk: Women of Easter



As we look at Easter, it’s easy to miss them. They weren’t the ones who nailed Jesus to the cross. They didn’t beat or mock Him. They didn’t run and hide like many of his followers. They quietly watched. And that’s what makes their role so significant. In this episode, we’re looking at the women of the Easter.
