Women In The Bible

Lent 2017 Theme – Call for contributors

“Women of the Bible” is the Niagara Anglican’s planned daily meditation series for Lent next year, beginning on Ash Wednesday, March 1, 2017.

We are seeking 40 female volunteers to each select a woman from the Bible and write a short meditation (175 words or less) about her. Your meditation should include Bible references, the woman’s life/faith story and why you have chosen her.

If you need assistance in making a selection, Google “women of the Bible” or check out the entry “List of Women In The Bible” in Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia.

To volunteer or receive answers to your questions, contact co-ordinator Mary Anne Grant below or at 905-527-1316, ext. 380.

Volunteer immediately to reserve your favourite person and help the Niagara Anglican get a head start on Lent. Now is a marvellous time to sit in your comfortable venue, to read, reflect and then write your meditation.

This will be the fifth year the Niagara Anglican has featured Lenten meditations for the season preceding the great celebration of Easter. Every year, three or four other diocesan papers have reprinted all or some of the daily reflections, which were also available worldwide on our diocesan website.

The previous four years focused on the gospels—Matthew, Mark, Luke, John—and included meditations from a wide variety of lay people and clergy, as well as students from Trinity Theological College Toronto.
