Sarah Circle is a women’s bible study that meets the second Tuesday of each month. Our new study this year will be What my Grandmothers Taught Me: Learning from the Women in Matthew’s Genealogy of Jesus.
What My Grandmothers Taught Me: Learning from the Women in Matthew’s Genealogy of Jesus
By Merryl Blair with Suggestions for Leaders by Magdalena I. García
Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary—Matthew names these women for a reason. How might Jesus have heard the stories of his grandmothers? What might the young Jesus have felt, as he heard about his family? What might the stories of these women have added to his sense of identity, as part of a particular family in a particular time and place? And what can Jesus’s grandmothers-of-the-faith teach us? By exploring these stories together, we will have a richer idea of what the good news is.
Sarah Circle continues to support the Ecumenical Fellowship of the Least Coin prayer movement by collecting pennies each month that go to the worldwide organization of Church Women United. We also collect a monthly offering, which we try to support an organization related to women or women’s causes.
