WELCOME STRANGER | Lois and Eunice – Parenting Against the Odds | Acts 14:8, 19-23, 16:1-3, 1 Timothy 1:3-7 | Ian Clarkson

Ian Clarkson continues our Welcome Stranger series by looking at Lois and Eunice who can be found in Acts 14:8, Acts 14:19-23, Acts 16:1-3, 1 Timothy 1:3-7.

Lois, a Jewish woman, lived in Lystra, Turkey, which was a Roman Colony. Her daughter Eunice married a Greek who was a pagan. The son of a Jewish mother would normally have been circumcised, but Timothy was not, most likely because of his Father’s antagonism.
Lois, Eunice and Timothy were converted after Paul’s visit, and are examples of women who experienced mixed marriages, yet worked together as a big influence on Timothy and perhaps others. They area great example of parenting against the odds.
