Session 1: Thirsting for Treasure
Reflections offered on Gen 21:8–21, the story of Hagar and Ishmael sent away. Dr. Waters will help us chart our course through our own journeys. Our first session will be a time to integrate our own experiences with our theme of women at wells by taking up a unique spiritual practice Sonia will bring us!
Session 2: Steeped in Scripture
Lectio Divina is an age-old practice of prayerfully engaging with biblical texts. Sonia will be our guide as we dive into the famous text of Jesus and the Samaritan woman, John 4:1–26. This is a time to surrender in prayer and to be uplifted by the power of Scripture.
Session 3: Wells of Worth
Dr. Waters will work with the Samaritan woman text to draw out wells of meaning. Her insight will be coupled with group discussion to open up the text to the many female voices present.
