Our Next Steps Director, Bethany Mazur, concluded our summer hero series by looking at Lydia, who is believed to be the first European convert to Christianity. Not only was that incredibly brave, but for those of us who are of European descent, or even have ancestors from the countries colonized by Europeans - she is our history. As a successful and influential business woman, Lydia teaches us to view our work as something we do for God, not for men, and that there are eternal implications of our work.
