Project Runway: Pursuing Authentic Design

As promised, here is the news about Sovereign King Church’s Women’s Ministry.  Enjoy.

You could fill a library with the volumes of books written about how you can become the best you possible.  Sheer numbers alone prove these books ineffectiveness.  Additionally, it would appear that understanding what it means to be a woman is even more difficult.  Discerning who we are and who we can be often feels just out of reach.

What would be helpful is a setting where women could gather, ask questions, express fears, and find encouragement.  Then the process would be much easier.  An authentic design could be discovered and created simultaneously.

Welcome to Project Runway:  Pursuing Authentic Design.

A function of Sovereign King Church’s women’s ministry, Project Runway intends to create an atmosphere where women feel at home no matter their background, education, marital status, or place in life.  In order to do that, ladies will gather in each other’s homes twice a month for conversation, food, and topical conversation.  The goal is to create a community that will be centered on the Gospel.  This Gospel oriented community will lead with grace knowing that grace leads to transformation.

No small amount of time was put into deciding what these gatherings would look like.  The ongoing question has been, “What can women discuss in order to pursue authentic design?”  Meaning, what would help guide women into a discussion of what they were meant to be and what they can be?  After a good bit of investigation, we decided that studying the designer would be the best idea.

Beginning September 9th, the Project Runway Ladies will begin a person of Jesus study based upon His interactions with others found in the Gospels.  These will be observational and conversational requiring no prep work beforehand.  Each is its own self-enclosed portrait of Jesus, so if someone misses a gathering, they can pick right back up when they return.

Most importantly, in this relaxed environment, women can discover the character of their designer, mutually encourage each other to live out that design, and then begin designing their own unique patterns for which their lives can truly be found beautiful.
