Small Groups

Women’s Study

The women of Monte Sano UMC are meeting during the Sunday School hour on Sunday mornings to explore the 4th & 5th century wisdom of Christian women known as “Desert Mothers.” These women were committed to the daily practice of seeking to love as God loves. We will use the book, The Desert Mothers:  Spiritual Practices from the Women of the Wilderness by Mary C. Earle, to guide our discussion.  Books are available on Amazon.  All women are welcome!  This class will meet in the Prayer Chapel.  For more information, contact or (205) 516-7606.
