This post is a bit off the track I’ve taken so far, then again, it’s not off topic. We’re working on ‘navigating a new way’ and this definitely applies.
Moving to a new area brings with it several challenges, one of which is to find a worship community. That hasn’t been easy here on St Thomas. This week I am embarking on a new journey; an online Bible study through the Proverbs 31 Ministries (http://proverbs31.org/online-bible-studies/) called A Confident Heart. It’s a new adventure and a new way.
This is my first online Bible study. In July, my husband and I retired. In August we sold everything, including our home, and are now transients, or ‘homeless’ as some affectionately call us. Since then we’ve been spending time with our adult children and their families in Mill Creek WA, Portland, OR and now St Thomas, USVI. We plan to continue traveling for the next few years. Next stop Merida, Mx.
Finding a worship community or a way to remain grounded in our faith without a specific physical church is one of the new challenges we are navigating. When I heard about the Proverbs 31 online Bible study I was excited to learn of a place where I can be guided through a Bible study, do it on my schedule and join with other women who love Jesus. We are designed to be in community, to share, encourage, support, nurture and grow together in our love for each other and the Lord. This will be a great opportunity and a new adventure to navigate. Many thanks to the many women who have designed and continue to work on this project.
