Sisters in Scripture

What is Sisters In Scripture?

Sisters in Scripture is all about making the scriptures alive and relevant today.  With every offering—bible studies, retreats or presentations, we enter into the scriptural story through the lens of various biblical characters—men and women, those who were there, who experienced what happened and were changed by it. 
Using both scholarship and creative imagination, we prayerfully engage the text to discover meaning for today and for our lives.  Our purpose is always to encounter our God in the Word and discover what meaning and direction that encounter holds for us. 
Often it is through the bystander, the one overlooked, that we can most readily enter a scriptural scene.  Thus, our early emphasis was on the women of scripture who frequently go unnoticed.  The cast of characters has expanded beyond that, however, and become "equal opportunity.”  Every bible story holds potential for this creative process.

Sisters in Scripture Blog Post, Not Silent
One of the fringe benefits of working at a church all these years is having a chapel down the hall.  There are other chapels in my world—the backyard swing, my writing table, the side of my bed, sometimes inside my car, but there is something immediate about walking into the cool, dim, hushed space that is a church.

Sunday’s prayers, psalms, praise and petitions still hang in the air like incense.   I head to one of several special spots where I have fallen to my knees before, where my heart has been stirred or my tears been shed, where I have carried the Body of Christ back to my seat in humble reverence.  Here there is no preamble or pretense; there is only prayer.

This day I reel from disappointment.  


Witnesses to Resurrection - Online Retreat 

What is Witnesses to Resurrection?
It is the Stations of the Resurrection.  As the Stations of the Cross help us connect with the Passion, the Stations of the Resurrection help us connect with Easter and the Risen Lord. Each week a different post-Resurrection appearance is featured and explored. 
What is an online retreat?
Like any retreat, an online retreat is an opportunity to set time aside to be with Jesus, to reflect on God’s Word, to consider God’s invitation in one’s own life and to be changed by that encounter. The only difference is it happens in your own home.
More information about Witnesses to Resurrection can be found on our Witnesses to Resurrection page. 

"This was the first time I feel I have really "done” Easter and was present to its mystery and gifts the entire season.”
