Grit and Grace: Women of the Bible
Our summer worship series focuses on stories of women in the Bible. We chose 14, but there are many more women, named and unnamed, whose stories tend to be less familiar to us because of the male authorship and canonization of our scripture. This summer, we seek to lift up voices that have historically been silenced, and we invite everyone into a time of sacred imagination: without much information about many of these women, what stories can we read into their stories? How can we seek to understand their lives and their world? What do they have to teach us today?
