Our Bible study gatherings brought together women from many denominations. Most of the women from Myanmar were Baptist. In Laos, women belonged to the Laos Evangelical Church. And in Cambodia, we gathered with young Lutherans, a sprinkling of Presbyterians, Anglicans and nondenominational Christians.
As a lifelong student of the Bible, I experienced afresh the pain and pleasure of becoming like a teenager again. When we study the Bible with people different from ourselves, we allow God to help us see the world—and hear God’s voice—with new eyes and ears, and a fresh, receptive heart.
