Today is the third week of the retreat workshop/contemplation/art commune that I’ve been taking. We spend the week reading and thinking about the two women, and then after a short discussion, we art.
I’d like to share with you the readings for anyone that was interested in doing this at home.
The first woman of the Gospel is the woman caught in adultery. The reading can be found at John 8:1-11.
Our second woman is the woman who anoints Jesus in Bethany. That Scripture can be found at Mark 14:3-9.
Later this afternoon or tomorrow, I’ll share what came about in today’s hands-on portion.
What Ihave found in the past two weeks and four readings thus far is that we can not only see ourselves in these Gospel women, but often we see the women around us, who encourage us to look at things a little differently and who love and support us. I can only hope to be one of those women to someone else.
