This Wednesday I'm preaching for the Advent midweek service at church. I'll be preparing a sort of monologue-style representation of the prophet Anna, who appears at Jesus' naming and dedication. The text for the day can be found here.
Fortunately and unfortunately, the commentaries on this pericope focus largely on Simeon or the significance of the naming/dedication of Jesus. There is little said about Anna herself, other than her tribe and familial connections. I'll be looking further into her heritage (i.e. the tribe of Asher) and such to hopefully develop a faithful presentation of her.
