Soul Sisters

Denise Jackson shares the vision and thinking behind a new group at Park designed to provide mutual support and discipleship for ladies in the church

 soul sisters 2017bLast month 20 ladies from our Church met at Sandra’s for a time of sharing and fellowship
We were treated to a delicious lunch served by Emily and her friend and were able to chat to each other in a relaxed atmosphere, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life!
Sandra also shared an article she had found by Julia Bettencourt which has inspired us to make such meetings a regular event
The article started with a quote from 1 Samuel 18:1:

“And it came to pass, when he made an end of speaking unto Saul that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul”
We want the relationships between us as Christian women to develop into loving, encouraging and deep friendships, that we might emulate David and Jonathan in being good for each other’s’ souls, through our shared love and faith in Christ
Julia’s article introduced the idea of ‘Soul Sisters’; ladies bound together by Christ, who choose to encourage and motivate one another through life
There are those who have a wonderful sense of humour and bring laughter to our lives just by being Silly
Then there are those that Inspire us to do better, to get involved and to believe in ourselves

Others model great Strength despite the struggles and challenges they have experienced
We love to Talk, to share and to enable others to cope with whatever life throws at them

Then there are those women who are gifted at spotting when someone is down and lift our spirits through Encouragement

Because we shared a love of Christ we can be sure that these friends are Real; grounded women who want the best for each other

And finally as Christians, all these women have been Saved and know the Lord


Our next meeting is a ‘Bring and Share’ lunch at the church on Saturday 14th October at 12.30pm
So if you're a woman who wants to grow in her faith and develop closer friendships with other believers then we’d love for you to join us
