Welcome back from summer vacation ladies! We’ve been planning several September events to turn your faith into relationship. Here’s a summary of upcoming events…

Prayer Study: Discerning the Voice of God by Priscilla Shirer –> https://www.womensbiblecafe.com/2017/08/voice-of-god-register/

Several women asked us to lead an online Bible study on prayer, so we’ve selected the updated version of Discerning the Voice of God by Priscilla Shirer. You may know this author as the actor on the War Room Movie, or perhaps you’ve joined us for her Armor of God study. We’ve been leading her studies here since 2010 and are thrilled to go through this study again. Join us!

40 Day Sugar Fast –> https://www.facebook.com/groups/40dayWBC/

We have a committed group of women who are starting a 40 day spiritual fast on September 1st, 2017. Many are excluding sugar from their diet, while a few others have decided to fast from coffee, bread, or specific foods. There are no rules for this fasting group. Jump in and begin a 40-day fast with us. If you have a medical condition don’t fast from sugar or food without a doctor’s approval. 

Christian Leadership Coaching –> https://www.christineabraham.org/coaching/

Turn your calling into ministry with our monthly leadership coaching! If you’re an author, speaker, small group leader, or someone called into ministry- get into this group! If you’re too busy, send your virtual assistant or intern and I’ll coach them how to support you.

Monthly Book Club –>https://www.womensbiblecafe.com/monthly-book-club/

We have a monthly book club with discussions on specific books. Pick any book from the list, read before the end of the month, and then we start again the next month. Our goal is to read 12 books in a year, or if you speed read, 52 books (or more) in a year. Join us for book of the month discussion questions, meet the author, and fun book-related events!

Scripture

Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. Romans 5:2 NLT

Write down this verse… then ask yourself “What is my place of undeserved privilege?” Are you “confidently and joyfully” looking forward to the future, or dwelling in the past?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BibleGateway.com Interviews Womens Bible Cafe Founder Christine Abraham

biblegateway WBC article

 

Shortly after posting this comment on Twitter, I was contacted by the BibleGateway team for an interview.

biblegateway twitter

Their response: We think the Bible Gateway App is a great tool for Bible reading and study. But when we read about somebody using it to complete dozens of Bible studies and a theology degree, we had to know more. So we got in touch with Women’s Bible Cafe to learn a bit more about the work they do, and how the Bible Gateway App helps them do it.

The interview was very enjoyable and the article is now published. Read it here: https://goo.gl/PZPt1c

 

Blessings,
