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?

Table Talks Return
The congregation is invited to gather for conversation following worship each week this summer. Following the similar pattern we had in February/March, there will be tables in the social hall where you can gather after worship for conversation. Two of the tables will be the same every week: 1) a Sermon Talk Back table for sharing reflections on the sermon of the day (with a minister or member of the adult faith formation team); 2) a Voting Our Faith table for discussion of the role of faith and church in this fall’s upcoming elections (facilitated by a minister or someone who has been involved with ISAIAH’s voter engagement efforts). There will also be open tables that anyone can claim to lead discussions on other topics.
