WWIT (Wise Women in Training) – is a group of women who meet to discuss books about spirituality. The group began with the goal of deepening our understanding of new developments in Christian theological writing and thinking. Our scope has broadened over the years to include other approaches to the moral and ethical issues of our day. Anyone interested in joining these discussions is welcomed.
