Joy can seem elusive in the midst of life’s challenges. Yet the wisdom and experience of spiritual leaders suggests that hardships cannot dampen our deep, abiding contentment. On the contrary, hardships create opportunities to find joy in our God and in ourselves, and then spread that joy to others. We will explore this idea by reading The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World, which relates a week-long conversation between Archbishop Desmond Tutu and His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and studying Paul’s letter to the Philippians, the New Testament’s book of joy. Facilitated by Liz Otteson.

This new group is for women in their 30s and 40s who are looking for a monthly Bible study and a chance to get to know more women in our congregation.

From October to May we will look at key portions of the Gospel of Mark. The study is designed to be more conversational and experiential than scholarly. And this group will put a decidedly female spin on Mark as we apply Jesus’ wisdom to our daily lives, roles, and responsibilities.
