Women of the Word (WOW) Bible Study

Wednesday; 9:30-11:00 a.m.

Beginning January 10 we’ll explore 2 books:

We’ll begin with Lisa Harper’s new book, The Sacrament of Happy: What a Smiling God Brings to a Wounded World.¬†Lisa unveils that happiness is a gift from God that we can unashamedly enjoy. Happiness tends to be cast as a fluffy emotion without substance rather than a biblical concept, but this is not theologically accurate. Wearing the twin hats of both seminarian and belly-laughing adoptive mom, Lisa Harper dismantles the old-school idea that joy, not happiness, is the truly spiritual emotion, and asserts that Christ-followers are actually called to happiness.

Next we’ll discuss¬†Keep It Shut by Karen Ehman. Karen explores how to better control your tongue, knowing what to say and how to say it, and realizing when it is best to say nothing at all.

Leslee Bechtel leads this friendly and lively group for women of all ages on Wednesday mornings in Vance Hall/Room 222.
