Sisters of the Spirit

About Sisters of the Spirit

Sisters of the Spirit (SOS) is for women who are interested in exploring their faith through book discussion. The group meets on Mondays from 1-2 pm in the chapel; please enter through the church office. Many in the group meet for lunch before hand at a designated place & all are welcome to join!

The focus of Sisters of the Spirit is around the book that the group is reading. Sisters of the Spirit does not have a designated facilitator, but the group reads and discusses chapters at a mutually-determined pace. Anyone who finds they would be interested in the book that is going to be read is encouraged to get a book and join in. Not everyone is on board for every book, and the group loves to have new people and to hear new points of view

Sisters of the Spirit invite you

   

Books are determined by a recommendation by group members, and the group votes on which book to read next. Books range from those found in the theology section of a bookstore, to fiction or non-fiction that might be on the New York Times best seller list. All of these books have something to teach, and members share their understanding with one another as to what they mean to them. Some books are very light reading, some delve into deep and emotional subjects and some are classics that were read many years ago, but were felt to probably have a different lesson to teach as they are read now.

Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance.
Proverbs 1:5
