Special Event for Nine of Us

Nine women from around the county joined together for Bible Journaling at The Cheese Lady, as a kickoff to the study I lead at St. John Lutheran Church in Rochester, MI. The study (every 3rd Saturday) is open to anyone who wants to attend. We alternate locations...usually between church and my home studio. The Cheese Lady put together a nice tasting board of foods mentioned in the Bible such as dates, figs, almonds, honey, and cheeses from goat, cow and sheep. (We added some dark chocolate "just because.")

Each received a list of Bible verses mentioning these foods. We also shared Matzo crackers and fresh Challah bread with an explanation of the symbolism of the Challah bread to the Jewish people.

Our devotion focused on "Feed Our Faith" so we can follow Jesus call to "Feed My Sheep" based on John 21:15. We also had a quiet time devotion following along to the written lyrics and listening to the hymn "Feed My Sheep"

Our artsy time included using colored pencils with pre-drawn graphics to be attached to our Bible pages or traced in. We also added ribbon to paperclips for bookmarks.  

I truly enjoyed our time together and getting to know these sisters in Christ. Let me know if you'd like to join us in October.
