I attended a circle meeting at my Church today. Wow how it reminded me that I need to read the Bible. Everything that I learned in Sunday school as a child as escaped me. The circle meets once a month for one hour and is followed with a lunch and a speaker. Childcare is also provided which is a plus for me.
This year we will be studying the book of Ruth and Jonah. We received a study guide to follow along with. So, goodbye watching Bachelor on Monday Nights, hello reading the bible in preparation of my Circle Meetings. It is a great group of women that I mostly know, but some I look forward to getting to know. After our discussion we head to the Fellowship Hall for lunch. Today's lunch was yummy. The room is filled with older church members that have been in the same circle for years. I hope this circle will be one of those many years from now.
I was a member of a circle at my last Church in a different city and it was mostly a group of women with small children and the circle was focused on community care. We had speakers that were on interest to women and volunteered with a community group. I really enjoyed the circle-I was working at the time, so it was an opportunity for my child to play with other children his own age.
It looks like my Circle now is very Bible oriented. Oh how I need it! Mr. 5 is constantly asking questions about God and Jesus and what a better way for me to learn!
