2017-18 Bible Study: Tell your stories!

posted Sep 15, 2015, 9:15 AM by Carolyn Hampton

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance

the race that is set before us . . . (Hebrews 12:1).”

Melissa Bane Sevier, the author of our 2017– 2018 PW/Horizons Bible study on the book of Hebrews, is looking for your stories to include. 

(We’re not exactly sure in what way we’ll use these stories—perhaps in a supplement.) 

All of us have a “cloud of witnesses” that has helped us along the way and who, even though no longer with us, still inspire. 

Please, tell us your story of one of those witnesses. 

Please tell us the story of a woman, now deceased, who had a good influence on your life or on the life of someone you know. 

Include her name, her time and place and what made her influential. Please write her story on the back of this flier.  

[you may view/download the flyer on our documents page under National News: 2015 Quarterly Mailing - ed.]


Please include:  Name of person submitting the story 

That person’s contact information (Melissa may be contacting you for further information) 




Return your story to Melissa Bane Sevier, in care of Betsy Ensign-George, Presbyterian Women, 100 Witherspoon St., Louisville, KY 40202-1396;
