Three Women in John's Gospel: A Jar of Water, an Accusation & a Pound of Precious Ointment.
We all have our stories and this workshop invites you to engage with the stories and listen to the silent voices of three women from John’s Gospel. Two of these women are unnamed, they are, - The Samaritan Woman and the Woman Accused of Adultery; the named woman, is Mary of Bethany, - who anointed Jesus for his death.
This will be a contemplative workshop and the scriptural texts will be explored through meditation, music, and art. The conversations with these women will touch on the themes of grief, loss and resilience. We will use a feminist lens and scholars such as Sandra Schneiders and Elisabeth S. Fiorenza to interpret the texts and enable the wisdom and experiences of the group to emerge.
We will access the wisdom & experience of the group through discussion & dialogue. BYO lunch, nibbles provided.
