Gather Bible Study: For January-April 2018, Mark Allan Powell will explore what biblical stories mean to people around the world. In “Multiple meanings,” a four-session Bible study, Powell explores how people empathize with a variety of biblical characters, apply biblical stories in their lives and respect other people’s experiences of those stories. Powell, a professor of New Testament at Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio, has taught at seminaries in Estonia, Russia and Tanzania. He edited the “HarperCollins Bible Dictionary” and has written more than 100 articles and 25 books on the Bible and religion.

Be sure you are looking at and reading our Synod Women’s newsletter, The Northwester. It comes out quarterly. Your unit should be receiving at least one free copy. Encourage women to order their own copies for only $8.00 a year. It’s a good bargain! Our editor, Eleanor Johnson, does a wonderful job of publishing our newsletter and she’d welcome any news from local units so feel free to share some of the wonderful things you are doing in your units.  Email your articles or ideas to Eleanor by September 1, December 1, March 1, or June 1. If you want to know what’s happening with the women of our Synod, the Northwester is the place to find out!
