In John’s Gospel, Jesus has a conversation with a Samaritan woman at a well. Through their mutual sharing, she comes to recognize the life-giving presence of Jesus in her own life. She experiences Jesus as “living water.” As women, we too know the life-giving power of mutual sharing, support and dialogue. We too reflect on our lives, and recognize our own God-quest. In the very “stuff” of our lives we experience both the nurturing presence and the challenge of God’s Holy Spirit. Women’s Spirituality Circles are small groups of 12-18 women who gather once a month to nourish, reflect upon and share their own spiritual lives. A resource book is used, which enables the women to come to a deeper understanding of themselves and their own unique spirituality. Through reading, discussion and prayerful reflection, the women experience a deeper prayer life and the invitation to share their gifts in service to God’s people. They gather strength, insight and a sense of gratitude from one another. Each group has a facilitator whom we train.
