“Here is my servant, whom I have chosen, my beloved, with whom my soul is well pleased. I will put my Spirit upon him, and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles. He will not wrangle or cry aloud, nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets. He will not break a bruised reed or quench a smoldering wick until he brings justice to victory. And in his name the Gentiles will hope.” Matthew 12:18-21, NRSV

Attention Ladies! St. Matthew’s member Lisa Nelson will begin a weekly class next Monday (Sept. 16) evening from 7:00-8:30. “Spiritual Practices for Women” is a hands-on class covering a broad range of spiritual issues including prayer, Bible devotions, meditation, forgiveness, and fasting. Lisa shares that “the goal of the class is for each woman to grow in faith as she learns to use the spiritual tools that promote faith and grace and greater trust in our Lord.” Lisa is an international speaker and author who feels called to be in ministry with women. She will be teaching this course all year, and wants women to know that they are welcome to attend whenever they can make it – this is not a course that you will fall behind in if you miss a week! Childcare will be provided.
