“Once I realized I was part of the problem . . .
it’s amazing what happened.”
“I have attended for over fifty years and I am still an outsider.”
“I have a relationship with Christ but I cannot stand the relationships in church anymore. They have become so fake.”
“I love going to church and I love the ladies!”
“In the end pride got in the way, one woman started a rumor, gossip spread and we left the church.”
Nothing is more painful than walking in a tight pair of stilettos—except perhaps being wounded by other women. Does our Church journey have to hurt and cause damage? No!
Let’s put on some fun and fabulous footwear to walk a mile in each other’s shoes. We’ll meet Stella Stiletto, Fiona Flip-Flop, Nancy Newbie and others while we explore nine different points of view on a typical Sunday morning. As the day unfolds, poor communication, misconceptions and secrets result in unintentional pain being inflicted on themselves and each other. Will truths be revealed? Will they ever get it right? Will they learn how to walk without stumbling and tripping?
Interwoven in the stories are quotes from dozens of women around the world who are experiencing similar struggles. But Soles Defining Souls isn’t just about other women’s footwear. It’s about what’s on our own feet too. We’ll finish our journey at The Cobbler’s bench for some much needed cleaning and repairs, and walk away together, beautifully restored.
