1 Samuel 1:1-28
In this episode we encounter the story of Hannah as she is tormented in many ways because she does not have a child. We discuss the treatment of childless women in ancient Israel, as well as in modern times. The pain and trauma of infertility is explored, and we look at the role one’s faith and congregations can play in coping with such grief. We are reminded of how God uses the shunned and powerless to do great things.
