Formation & Fellowship

Women on the Journey Covenant Group

Women on the Journey is a weekday opportunity for women to reflect on their lives as Christians in the world and to study the Bible in a small group setting. The gatherings focus on the joys and challenges of living our faith in all facets of our lives. Each meeting will include Bible Study as well as readings from the selected book. This year’s group is using The Meaning of Jesus: Two Visions by Marcus J. Borg and N.T. Wright. Copies of the book can be purchased through Amazon or at Christian book.com.

Was Jesus born of a virgin? Did he know he was the Messiah? Was he bodily resurrected from the dead? Did he intentionally die to redeem humankind? Was Jesus God? Two leading Jesus scholars with widely divergent views go right to the heart of these questions and others, presenting the opposing visions of Jesus that shape our faith today.

The group meets on Zoom weekly on Mondays, 9:30-11:30 a.m., beginning June 7 If you have questions, contact Heather at hwiseman@ stthomasepiscopal.org

Sisters of the Holy Grail

Sisters of the Holy Grail is a women’s fellowship & formation group gathering on the fourth Wednesday of the month. Due to the change in meeting format, group members have chosen to have a book study for the program year. The group will be reading From Widows to Warriors: Women’s Stories from the Old Testament by Lynn Japigna. Each meeting is meant to stand alone focusing on one or more specific women. Copies of the book can be purchased through Amazon or at christianbook.com.

In this book, Lynn Japinga acquaints us with the women of the Old Testament. From flawed heroes like Ruth and Rahab to fierce fighters like Deborah and Jael, we will encounter a wealth of foremothers in the faith in all their messy, yet redeemable, humanity. For too long the women of the Bible have been depicted in one-dimensional terms. However, the women of the Bible are complex, multidimensional individuals whose lives are inspiring, funny, and tragic in ways too many of us never hear. This book introduces and retells every female character, diving deeply into what each woman’s story means for us today.

Due to restrictions for the coronavirus, our in-person meetings cannot take place at this time. We will meet on Zoom monthly on the fourth Wednesday, 7:00-8:30 p.m. beginning October 28th until such time as in-person gatherings are possible. If you have questions, contact Heather at hwiseman@stthomasepiscopal.org
