TOPEKA, KS. — Members of Kehila Meshichit B’nai HaTechiya are grateful for Marilyn Owen, a local Christian with a heart for Israel, who provides a valuable link between Messianic Jews and normal people who visit the congregation.
“When normal folks show up, they typically feel uncomfortable and disoriented,” explained Messianic Rabbi Herman Gwynne. “We make sure that Marilyn greets them as soon as possible to help them feel at ease.”
Rebbitzen Lily agrees. “Marilyn doesn’t wear anything weird and knows how to speak in a way that normal people can understand,” she said.
