I just finished reading Hebrews 11. You know - all those people, listed by name in the Hall of Faith. So many people to learn from and about. And yet the name I was looking for was missing. There's no "by faith Daniel". He's not in there.
I can think of lots of reasons why he should have made the cut and I could spell them all out for you but where's the fun in that? I'd much rather talk about Daniel with some friends over a peaceful walk in the woods.
That's what I'm inviting you ladies to do, join me for a walking Bible study. You're probably wondering how something like that works. Each week I send an email with a passage to read and questions to help you dig deeper into those words . Some of those questions are up for open discussion, ones that I could ask of anyone at any time. They're intended to shape our discussion along the trail. Some of them are intensely personal, designed to help you understand where you may find room to grow. Those personal questions are meant to stay between you and God, but recognize that they may bring up thoughts and concerns that you do want to share with the other ladies. It's your call. Our discussion goes where the Holy Spirit leads it to go. We just need to trust that God will not allow us to stray or cause our conversation to be hurtful to the others in the group.
We will meet every Tuesday morning in Pomfret at the old railroad station that serves as the trail head for the Airline trail near where 44 and 169 meet. Start time is 10 o'clock. As we walk along the trail we'll turn our study over to the Holy Spirit and see where He takes us.
This study is open to any interested woman. If you're not able to make it on Tuesday mornings don't feel like you can't still participate. It's absolutely OK to take those lessons and make them your own. Grab a few friends and your own corner of the world and trust God to lead the way.
Love, as always,
