Bras, Bibles, & Brews

Bring your story, bring your questions and let’s see what it has to do with us as women.  This is a feminist approach to scripture and other spiritual writings. By feminist we mean that we intentionally enter into conversation and relationship affirming and respecting all experiences.  No need to be Christian to come. In fact, we are hoping some of you aren’t. It’s better that way. We all learn more. *All women-identified folks are welcome!*
*Beer is optional. Many snacks and sips available.
