WOMEN'S MONTHLY BIBLE STUDY
The theme of the PCUSA 2020-21 Women’s Bible Study, “Into the Light: Finding Hope through Prayers
of Lament,” could not be more appropriate! If ever we felt the need to lament as individuals as well as
a community, it is now. The study’s author, P. Lynn Miller, writes “When we lament, we move from
suffering to faith. In our faith, there is hope. We lament in order to hope.” And that brings us to Prospect’s
ministry theme for 2020-21, “Hope.” All women are welcome to join the study, led by Rita Boyer, via zoom
the second Monday of each month from 10:00-11:30 AM.

There is no particular order in which you need to proceed, nor do you need to complete all of the options. Different themes will be offered throughout the year.
