Dear Friends,

This week in worship, I will be starting a series of messages about wisdom in Proverbs. Throughout the book of Proverbs, wisdom appears as a woman, calling out to the people. I love this image, and I am interested in exploring how wisdom calls to us as Friends. We have deep wisdom in the Quaker tradition, which guides us in our worship and how we make decisions. I look forward to considering this together.

If you would like more Bible study, I will be leading a session of Woodbrooke’s “Woke Bible Study” series on May 23 from 2:00-3:30 p.m. (ET). The topic is “Do Women Have to Keep Silent?” In this session, we will look at some of these challenging verses about women’s roles, and place them in context.

Blessings, Ashley
