Reflections of Hope
Monday, August 11 2014

The Old Testament book, Song of Solomon is eight chapters of love poetry so it’s a fair question to ask: What does this book have to do with answering the question “What Matters Most?” The opening chapter The Self seemed as though it may be difficult for me to believe that I would find the answer. It was in the middle of my read that I chose as alternative titles Is He Me? For chapter one and for the book, Sex: When It Matters, It’s the Most! Nonetheless, I resolved to trust the author since I have enjoyed reading her blog and other books in years past.

On the website a summary of my notes that were written in the margins of my book along with the author’s words that I either underlined, placed checked marks next to, many stars and every once in a while I drew a happy face to hopefully bring attention to the text at a later time during our virtual discussions on conference call with women globally or after service chats with the women of Allen Chapel Church in Indianapolis, Indiana.

One last thing, I hope that you have read the Song of Solomon in a contemporary version prior to delving into Dr. Renita Weems’ commentary of it. If you have not yet purchased her book, please do but if you cannot just join the call. Remember on the website  notes will be available and reflective questions from the book that will be discussed  .

Rev. Dr. Renita Weems writes as though she is having afternoon tea at your house and you’ve made the children go outside, because grown folks are talking. Besides being a wife and mother for those who do not know who she is, she is a scholar and a preacher, with a Ph.D. in Old Testament Literature.
