“The Woman Who Changed the World”

13 On the Sabbath we went outside the city gate to the river, where we

expected to find a place of prayer. We sat down and began to speak to the women who had gathered there. 14 One of those listening was a woman

from the city of Thyatira named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth. She was a

worshiper of God. The Lord opened her heart to respond to Paul’s message. 15 When she and the members of her household were baptized, she invited

us to her home. “If you consider me a believer in the Lord,” she said, “come and stay at my house.” And she persuaded us. Acts 16:6-15
