Women of Faith August Meeting

The Women of Faith will meet Tuesday, August 30, for a potluck salad lunch and movie at 12:30 PM at the home of Jan Harris.

Vision is a movie about the life of Hildegard von Bingen, a 12th century Benedictine nun in Germany.  The movie was filmed at convent in Germany and uses English subtitles.   The writer gathered information about Hildegard, who lived at a time when the history of women was not well documented, through Hildegard’s writings and correspondence. The experiences of a woman in the church 1000 years ago are fascinating.

Hildegard had many talents. She was a visionary, herbalist, environmentalist, play- wright, composer and administrator. The music in the movie was composed by Hilde- gard. An aspect of her religious life was that she wanted to draw happiness from relig- ion. How did she create a rich environment for herself at a time when church life was austere and women were marginalized?

All women of the church are invited to this event. Please RSVP via email to ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) so seating and lunch arrangements can be made.  Jan will have maps in church on August 28.
