I thought you would want to know about an opportunity for us to get together (in person or online) and share fellowship around God’s Word. My upcoming event: “Delighting in God’s Word,” will be held on May 18-19, and I hope you’ll be able to join me.
I know that for many women reading the Bible can be like doing your algebra homework: Hoping you’ll get it done so you can get a good grade from God for the day. For others I know it’s something you know you should do but frequently struggle to find the time or even the inclination. Perhaps your lack of interest in the Bible is a great source of guilt and shame, and you’ve just given up. Or maybe you’ve read the Bible like it’s Aesop’s fables, just a morality tale that’s meant to show you how you should be like Daniel or Esther. And though you’ve tried, you just can’t get your Queen on.
I want you to know that I understand.
I mean, what do all those strange rituals and frightening stories (especially in the Old Testament!) have to do with Christianity? Aren’t they disconnected from our daily lives? And what about the way that the Bible talks about women? Should we assume from it that the Lord doesn’t really care about us as women? Should we leave the Bible reading to the guys?
I promise that the Bible is so much more. I promise to help you see it in a different way…in the way it was meant to be read…in the way Jesus taught His disciples to read it. And I’m praying that the Lord will open your heart and mind to understand the Scriptures in ways you’ve never dreamed possible and that your heart will burn within you with a new zeal for Him and reading His Word.
So, here are the particulars: If you live in the Lansing, Michigan area (or think it might be fun to take a road trip with some of your besties), you can sign up to attend the event here: http://delight.gotothehub.com. Just click on the “Attend in Person” link.
If, on the other hand, it’s not possible for you to join us in person, then here’s the link to livestream the event at any time between May 18 and July 31: http://delight.gotothehub.com. All you need to do is click on the “Purchase A Streaming License” link. There you’ll find an option to watch the event alone or with others. And remember, if you can’t watch it live in May, you’ll still have access to it for a couple of months—into the middle of summer!
I’m praying you’ll be able to join me and learn to experience His word in a whole new way: as one millennia long love letter written to you. I am,
Under the Mercy with You,
