The three of us were sitting around my living room, dodging our toddlers, rocking our babies, dodging fallen Cheerios, and collecting a mental pile of all the things we yearned for: space to read our Bibles and discuss our questions with one another, time for a full cup of coffee, a night of uninterrupted sleep, rich Bible teaching, a beautiful table full of women and laughter and delicious food, opportunities beyond Sunday morning to form relationships with women who might disciple us, with women we might disciple. “Oh well,” we said. “Wouldn’t that be amazing?”
During our first worship session, Story & Soul Team member Caroline Saunders shared the big story of scripture through the image of water. We are praying that God will be glorified and that women will be drawn to him through this retelling of his story.
At our 2017 retreat, Team Member Caroline Saunders shared “The Story of Hunger,” a retelling of the big story of scripture through the image of bread and hunger. Watch the video below for a preview, or experience the study in a new way: through our free 14-day study.
“God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light. And God saw that the light was good.’” From the third verse in the Bible, light and goodness intersect. Later in the Gospel of John, we learn that not only did God create literal light, but that He himself is symbolically light—that by which we see all things.
