WELCA monthly women's Bible study
The monthly women’s Bible study will gather Wed Dec 13th at 1:30 pm in classroom A. The Gather Magazine Advent study is “Topsy-turvy Advent” by the Rev. Hannah Hawkinson (picture below). Janis Richert facilitates this study. New attendees are welcome!
Study introduction: In her song, Mary, the mother of Jesus, praises God for turning the world upside down–or perhaps, turning the world right-side-up! Gather’s annual Advent devotional focuses on the Magnificat song of Mary (see Luke 1:46b-55), as well as parallel topsy-turvy stories of Mary’s ancestors, including Shiphrah and Puah (Exodus 1), Hannah (1 Samuel 1-2), the daughters of Zelophehad (Numbers 27), Hagar at the well (Genesis 16 and/or 21) and Ruth and Hagar.
Special Dec 3rd “Topsy-turvy Advent, an exciting online event!
Tired of the commercialized rush toward Christmas? Plan to join Women of the ELCA and Gather for a Sunday afternoon of sabbath rest and inspiration around the Gather Advent devotional, “Topsy-turvy Advent.”
This fun, spirit-filled Advent devotional event will take place Sunday, December 3 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. MST. You’ll meet our Advent 2023 devotional writer and host, the Rev. Hannah Hawkinson, as she welcomes you to join us from wherever you are most comfortable—favorite armchairs, church fellowship rooms or together with family and friends. Pastor Hannah will help us understand the season of Advent and Mary’s song of praise (see Luke 1:46b-55) to God for turning the world upside-down—or perhaps, right-side-up! Participants will also have opportunities to discuss faith questions with others in online small groups.
