Women’s Spirituality Group, Tuesday, April 4th at 7:00pm

Women’s Spirituality Group

The Women’s Spirituality Group gathered for their planning meeting to discuss where to go next.  Several suggestions were offered and the group chose to go with a video entitled

a one-woman play written and performed by

Carol Lynn Pearson

From the cover…

“Sixteen women from history speak their lives, a paleolithic woman, an Egyptian priestess, a biblical woman, a Gnostic woman, a medieval witch, a Shaker deaconess, and others.  Their dramatic stories show that the human family has always longed for its Mother in Heaven, has often exiled her, and is now inviting her to come home.”

The group is currently planning to spread out the viewing of the video over the next 6 weeks to allow for inspired discussion.

There is still time to participate in this event, please contact Rev. Nancy, 505-896-8182, if you can attend, or if you cannot but still wish to obtain this information and become a member.
