Violence against women in Delhi reached a critical point in recent years. In response to the concern for the health and well-being of women in the city the public transportation system, police services, and other agencies began to reserve spaces for women only. There is also a small group of women who take regular walks through the city at midnight to reclaim public space.
Jonah was protected as he walked into the city to reclaim it. God protected the psalmist and, in the human form, God walked among us to reclaim our hearts. To what is God calling us as we move into a new future? We can respond to this call trusting in God’s steadfast and constant presence and provision.
