Nehirim Women’s Retreat – Workshop
Here we are at a Women’s retreat. What does that word mean to us? Did we come because it is a woman’s retreat, or despite the label? Does the tag, name, identity, of woman sit comfortably with us, uncomfortably, indifferently, fluidly, or perhaps not at all? We will jump start a conversation about identity with a study of three interrelated, but quite different, women in the Bible. Deborah the judge and warrior, Jael the dangerous hostess, and Sisera’s mom, who glorifies war and is a tragic figure. Only Deborah is an Israelite. All are found in Judges 4 and 5. Come for a text study and a conversation about gender identity.
