A Word on Women…

In late summer some ladies of the church took on the challenge of beginning a Sunday School class FOR ladies, and Melanie Adams led off with these words from scripture: “Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good.  Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.” (Titus 2:3-5)   For the next several weeks, we examined and dissected this scripture to see how it applied to each of us individually and also as a group.

Many issues that women face are addressed in these few verses and the scripture implies the necessity of community as women face everyday challenges.  It is my hope that though we approach each subject at times from different perspectives, that we can learn from these differences, become skillful at showing each other grace, and support each other through God’s word in our daily struggles.
