Each day they are sharing information about some aspect of the bill and its effects on women’s lives.

Tapestry Bible Study
Journeys through Revelation:
Apocalyptic Hope for Today
By Barbara Rossing With Suggestions for Leaders by Louise Lawson Johnson
What comes to mind when you think of the book of Revelation?
Scary images? The four horsemen come to unleash destruction?
Mysterious numbers such as “666”? The endtime battle of Armageddon?
In recent years, an enormous prophecy industry has marketed frightening images of Revelation, leaving many people intimidated by this amazing and often misunderstood book. Although brimming with mysterious symbolism, Revelation ultimately is a book of hope that throughout history has sustained people who are oppressed. It is a wonderfully Christ-centered book, full of worship and praise.
In the 2010-2011 Tapestry Bible study, Journeys through Revelation:
Apocalyptic Hope for Today, Barbara Rossing guides us on a journey to meet the crucified Lamb, Jesus. In a journey reminiscent of the ancient Israelites’ exodus from slavery, we are led from an unjust empire and its system of domination, through mythic battles and plagues, until, ultimately, we find ourselves in a renewed creation where God comes to live with us on earth. This brilliantly hope-filled vision speaks to us in the midst of the urgent crises of our day. In a time when all of creation stands at a turning point, a kairos moment, Revelation can help guide the choices we make each day as we seek to live into the renewal that God has for the whole world.
