For all women who wish to grow in faith by studying the Bible together. Short-term studies allow members to participate according to interest and availability. We begin our year reading, I Corinthians – Searching the Depths of God by Jaime Clark-Soles, Professor of New Testament and Altshuler Distinguished Teaching Professor at Perkins School of Theology. Highly recommended by two of the group’s favorite authors, Amy-Jill Levine and Adam Hamilton, as well as our very own Rev. Jerry Butler, whose New Testament and Greek professor was Dr. Clark-Soles. This study is very accessible as Dr. Clark-Soles’ style is conversational and she provides a helpful guide to this most important letter. Led by Melanie Rowlison.

We invite you to join us as we read and gather in community to share and explore mindfulness and compassion.

Our new book is: Radical Compassion: Learning to Love Yourself and Your World with the Practice of RAIN by Tara Brach. In this heartfelt and deeply practical book, Tara Brach offers an antidote to life’s stresses-: an easy-to-learn four-step meditation that quickly loosens the grip of difficult emotions and limiting beliefs. Each step in the meditation practice (Recognize, Allow, Investigate, Nurture) is brought to life by memorable stories shared by Tara and her students as they deal with feelings of overwhelm, loss, and self-aversion, with painful relationships, and past trauma–and as they discover step-by-step the sources of love, forgiveness, compassion, and deep wisdom alive within all of us. Led by Christine Dozal and Mary Webster.
