MEETS ON THE THIRD MONDAY EVENING EACH MONTH AT 7:00 PM
Study Encouragement Promise
Lydia circle is a small group of empowering women who encourage one another to pursue the Lord. Their field of study this year is "God's Earth is Sacred" and will use the Study Guide from Just Women, Summer, 2106 by Reverend Dr. Beth Rupe.
This study guide offers four sessions that will introduce and define eco-justice, provide an overview of what others are doing to make a difference, and encourage your group to consider how they can answer the call to care for creation. In an attempt to communicate the scope of the environmental crisis and the call for God's people to adopt and advocate for an approach that recognizes the interplay between human dignity and quality of life and care of the environment, the resource Just Women, focuses on eco-justice. Featuring articles on poison water in Flint, Michigan: and on the Green Chalice, the Disciples care ministry of creation; Just Women names sins of abandoning our role as environmental stewards and calls us back to our role as co-creators with God in caring for all of creation.
We will take the summer off and start meeting again in September.
