Women's Evening Book Study

 

Wednesdays, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
322/Conference Room
Facilitators: Cheryl Jurrus

All women are welcome to W.E.B.S. (Women's Evening Book Study)!

At W.E.B.S., we don’t just read books---we delve into them, study them, apply them to our own experiences, and look for God’s work in our world and our lives.
We also share what’s happening in our own lives, attend plays and concerts, and get together for lunch or dinner occasionally.
We pray, discuss, share, laugh, and have fun together!  ALL are welcome! 
 
We typically have three book study/discussion sessions: fall, winter, and spring.
 
Our 2018-2019 theme is "Remarkable Women"
  
2018-2019 Books:
 
Fall 2018 Session: October 3 - November 14, 2018
(note that we will not meet on October 31)
 
We read and discussed the book Everything Happens for a Reason (and Other Lies I've Loved) by Kate Bowler.
Recommended by Pastor McEachran, it was a great book for discussion about the Prosperity Gospel and facing death. Kate is a courageous, remarkable woman who is also a theologian. Bill Gates has it on his "Top Five Books for Summer Reading". 
“A meditation on sense-making when there’s no sense to be made, on letting go when we can’t hold on, and on being unafraid even when we’re terrified.”—Lucy Kalanithi, New York Times
  
 

2017-2018 Books:
Fall 2017 Session: October 4 - November 15, 2017
We read Katharina Luther: Nun, Rebel, Wife by Anne Boileau, and learned about Luther’s wife: her childhood, time at the convent, life as an ex-nun, and wife. It is based on historical facts and was timed to help us commemorate the 2017 Reformation Anniversary.
 
Winter 2018 Session:
January 3 - February 7, 2018
We learned about India, and discussed marriage, society, women’s roles, cuisine, and other issues depicted by the author in the book The Space Between Us by Thrity Umrigar 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Spring 2018 Session:
April 11 - May 23, 2018
We read another book about India.: Secret Daughter by Gowda.
