    Drawing Deeply from our Own Wells: A Writing Experience for Women with Late Life Wisdom with Joyce Hollyday

    Upon hearing that most people in the U.S. have water piped into their homes, an African woman responded, “But how do the women speak to each other? If we didn’t talk at the village well, we wouldn’t know about our lives.” If you are a woman in that third stage of life (what shall we call it -- the Crone era?), please consider being part of this 8-week series. You will be invited to dig deeply into your own personal well of experience and wisdom. And together, we will create a “village well” as we share our stories. No writing experience is necessary. No grades! Just a safe space for writing, sharing, and connection.

    Joyce Hollyday is a co-pastor and co-founder of Circle of Mercy, an ecumenical congregation in Asheville. She is the author of several books, including Clothed with the Sun: Biblical Women, Social Justice, and Us.
