THE STORY OF RUTH - Twelve Moments in Every Woman's Life with GISELE BAUCHE & JANICE COOK  SPACES LEFT

Though the story of Ruth is an ancient story, it is our story too.  A book found in a used bookstore, inscribed with the following beautiful message has shaped this workshop series;

"…be reminded of your inner courage and strength to follow the paths that are “life-giving”.  Every woman’s journey is filled with challenges, adventures, disappointments and sorrows; but it also offers, in great abundance, profound joy and great rewards for our patient efforts.  All women must journey with wisdom, strength and conviction to define ourselves as ‘woman’ in our society."

Using Joan Chittister's book we will visit the twelve moments that shape us, with the hope of coming home to one's self.  This workshop series will offer a blend of story-telling, discussion, and creative expression.  Participants will leave the session having created special mementos, capturing their personal connections to the moments shared in the Story of Ruth.

Participants will source their own copy of The Story of Ruth - Twelve Moments in Every Woman's Life by Joan Chittister OSB.  This book is recommended reading for the workshop series.
