Lutheran women have a long history of Bible study, discipleship, and desire to deepen their spiritual life and learn about issues.
Women of the ELCA offers free, downloadable program resources—all in English and many in Spanish—to help you grow in faith and engage in ministry and action.
We continue our focus on women’s health in all its many facets. If we look at our complete and total health holistically, doesn’t it make sense to include financial health? When we consider health in mind, body, and spirit, do we ponder how financial health and giving are integral to our wellbeing? Grace-Full Living can be used in its entirety all at once or divided over a longer period of time. It is divided into three parts of about 60 minutes each. Use in a congregational setting, as a conference event, or as a workshop.
Have you thought about hymns or Bible readings for your funeral? Or the funeral of a loved one? Living Hope: Funeral Hymns and Scripture guides your exploration of hymns and Bible readings, drawing on the experiences of women and worship planners. Living Hope offers a great 90 minute program, but it can easily be expanded into two sessions or even a three-hour mini-retreat.
A reflection on the phrase “Give us this day our daily bread” that explores what you can learn about by baking bread: patience, community, how to be intentional and attentive, and the joy that comes from wide-eyed anticipation. Can easily be used as a one-day retreat, complete with bread-baking!
Sacred Space as Metaphor follows an earlier resource, Sacred Spaces. Since we know God creates a sacred space within each of us, we can live into this metaphor, embracing all that is ours in Christ and the question, “In what ways am I experiencing the life of Christ?” This resource will help you engage the sacred work of growing into Christ as a bearer and reflector of God’s grace and love for the world.
Continuamos nuestro enfoque en la salud de la mujer en todas sus múltiples facetas. Si nos fijamos en nuestra salud total y completa de manera integral, ¿no crees que tenga sentido incluir la salud financiera? Cuando consideramos la salud en mente, cuerpo y espíritu, ¿reflexionamos sobre cómo la salud financiera y donando son fundamentales para nuestro bienestar? Vivir llenas de gracia se puede utilizar en su totalidad de una vez o dividida en un período de tiempo más largo. Se divide en tres partes de 60 minutos cada uno. El recurso se puede utilizar en su congregación, como un evento de conferencias, o como un taller.
