St. George’s Women of the Word (WoW!) believes that, while important, a singularly devotional study of the Bible is insufficient for preparing women to negotiate the currents and tides of contemporary life. The goal of WoW! is to equip women with the tools to think theologically and thus to form a foundational Christian worldview. To do so, we must first understand the original, historical context of Scripture and then apply that meaning to parallel circumstances in our lives today. An in-depth knowledge of the Bible is therefore critical to everyday life. To quote from Sarah Flashing in “Preparing Women to Live Worthy of the Call” (2011):
“Studying theology is our participation in … relationship with God. It isn’t about gathering a ton of unnecessary knowledge that will never make a difference in your life, but about committing to God in the deepest way possible.
Even the process of doing theology has great value as it trains the mind to welcome ideas that are reasonable and glorify God, and to reject ideas and ways of thinking that hurt us and contradict truth. Doing theology helps us to become critical thinkers in every area of life.”
"Everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope" (Romans 15:4). Thus we say, “Let us know, let us press on to know the Lord” (Hosea 6:3) for “the people who know their God shall stand firm and take action” (Daniel 11:32). Join St. George’s Women of the Word for in-depth Bible studies each Tuesday morning from 10:30 am until noonday prayers. Complimentary onsite childcare is available.
