Women’s Bible Study
Women’s Bible Study will start up again on Tuesday, January 23rd at 2:30 pm. The topic for that date is “Jesus and the Evil Eye: When God Blesses the Undeserving.” This is part of a series called, “When God Forgives the Guilty.” (We did the first study on Jonah in November.)
We will look at the final study in this series on February 6th. The topic for that day is “Paul and the Power of Failure.” Note that this meeting is on the first Tuesday of the month rather than the second Tuesday. This change is due to Shrove Tuesday on the second week.
Going forward into Lent, we have a resource called, “Faces of Christ” published by the ELCA. It is meant to be a five week study, so the group will need to decide if we’d like to meet every week during Lent or if we’d like to try to do two sessions in each meeting every other week, or if we’d like to pick three out of the five studies to discuss.
The women’s group will also need to decide if there is a preference for meeting on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays or if meeting on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays works for people. (February will need to be the 1st and 3rd.)
