Monthly Book Discussion: The Black Swan Effect
October 11, 2021
Online Peer-Learning Groups – Once a month for 2 hours (registration asap – 12 places only)
Featured Book: The Black Swan Effect, ed. Felicity Dale
Facilitated by Wendy Wilson (Missio Nexus Mission Advisor – Dev of Women, Women’s Development Track – Exec Dir)
If you are desiring connection with a wider circle of Great Commission women who want to dive deeper into God’s Word, and what we learn from the stories of women especially, this is for you!
Groups are limited to 12 participants (closed when full) to best support both our new relationships and vibrant discussions. Guided by experienced facilitators, we can look forward to a deeper dive on the subject at hand each week.
Because groups are limited in size, we count on group members doing all they can to be present, prepared, and ready to participate each meeting. While we understand that unexpected issues come up, we trust that each participant will honor her group by making this monthly meeting a priority. This way we can all look forward to the most meaningful experience together!
Register by asap to assure your place. When your registration is received you’ll receive a confirmation email and Zoom invitation! Feel free to order your book right away so you have it in plenty of time.

Cost: $25 when you register, plus purchase of the book separately.
The Black Swan Effect
Essays are written by a variety of men and women contributors. Each one explores the story of an amazing women who founded a unique ministry somewhere in the world, a particular and relatable tension the author experienced around the issue of women and leadership, and an aspect of theology that they unpack to explore that tension. You will agree with some things and disagree with others! But this book brings up excellent issues of position and practice that help us go further in our own understanding and converse more fluently with others as well.
Dates: Third Wednesday (once a month), starting October 20 through May 18
Time: 7-9pm, Eastern Time (4-6pm Pacific)
