BY She Reads Truth

Since 2012, She Reads Truth has maintained a singular mission: to be women in the Word of God every day. Ten years later, our community includes “Shes” from across the globe, but our mission hasn’t changed.

Reading Scripture together is the centerpiece of what we do at She Reads Truth. As we spend time as a community reading This Is The Church, we encourage you to start by reading the daily Scripture on your  own. Then join us here to engage and encourage one another as we respond to what we’ve read. Each day for this series, we’ll include a brief summary of the reading along with a prompt for conversation.

Paul uses a metaphor of the human body to describe the relationship between Christ and the Church. As the head of the body, Christ unifies the individual parts that serve distinct purposes. 

Discussion Question: In what ways have you seen the beauty of unique gifts and perspectives in your experience with the body of Christ? 

Take time to reflect on your Scripture reading and today’s question. Share what you are learning with others in the community in the comments.

    As the secretary at my church I often see how each group is equally as important to the rest.

    One part that got me was where it says we weep together and rejoice together. I’m going through a physically hard time right now with some unknown medical issues and I keep telling God how unfair it is that I’m going through this when others done have to. But I came across this verse and was reminded I need to rejoice with others good health, not envy it- just like others will weep with me for my health.

    I recently joined a new church. I made a list of everyone I knew by name and I found music, hospitality, humor, working with children, learning, service, community, fundraising, strength, generosity, fun and respect, friendship, cooking, faith, and peace ♥️
