Thinking. Deborah

I'm giving a talk on Deborah the Judge next week. It's amongst a series of talks with the theme 'A Perfect God for an imperfect people', but I have to say I'm stuck for what I'm going to focus on.

There is so much in the story and in Judges that one could talk about. What's the point of Deborah's story? What's not the point of it? What's something we can take from it for today? What do we learn about God through it all?

In all of this, I'm dreading being trite or 'heard-it-all-before' or prescriptive or just boring. I'll post the talk after I give it and you can see what I've come up with.
