Why Did the Pumpkin Cross the Road?

The wet season is upon us here in the Pacific Northwest.  My commute north transports me from the drizzle of Seattle to the deluge of the Stillaguamish where storms, unimpeded by the Olympic Range, drop their heavy load.  When storm after storm rolls in, folks measure their days by the rising river, road closures and flooded fields.  
Just before dark last night I noted through slanting rain and slapping wipers that the "Stilly,” what locals call the Stillaguamish, was moving swift above its normal banks but was still contained and still a several feet below the level of the road.  Coming back today, early morning light revealed the same—sign of a peaceful night.   Barely a half mile in, along Route 530, I pass a pumpkin field on my left.  Here it is in its earlier autumn splendor, when the sun was still shining:

Who We Are: SISTERS IN SCRIPTURE began with bible studies for women. Scripture was the perfect place to start for it is there that we encounter God’s story and it is there that, wonder of wonders, we discover our own story as well. A holy conversation begins that draws us into an ever widening circle, a circle with God at the center.

What we are about: Creating an awareness of God's ever-present and available grace in our lives.

How we do it: Providing opportunities for holy conversation that are attentive to, share in, and respond to God's ongoing revelation.

In the Word: Through Bible studies that teach, build community, foster prayer, and are relevant to everyday life.

In Community: Through retreats and workshops that provide opportunities to experience and share God's unfolding purpose.

In Resources: Through online and published resources that inspire, educate and connect.

On this site, you will find the scripture studies that host such conversation. You will also see other opportunities to come together and further consider God’s story, your story and the place where they come together.
