Spiritual Application

Focusing on the senses that God has given us to learn from His Word.

Learning from the woman who touched the hem of Jesus' garment.

Theme Verse Suggestions

When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.  Mark 5:27, 28

O taste and see that the LORD is good…  Psalm 34:8a 

But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.  Hebrews 5:14

Making Sense

Scent-sational (if you want to only concentrate on the sense of smell)

Sensational Ladies Meeting



Color:  any

Have a potpourri pot on or potpourri simmering on stove.  Use  fruit and spices. 

Have a scented candle lit.  Avoid floral scents because of allergies.


Touch Icebreaker:

Put one or more objects in a lunch bag. (Things such as an alarm clock, paint brush, or anything that has a distinctive shape.)

Tell your guests not to look inside. Pass it around and see who guesses the most items just by touching the bag on the outside.

Have several different spices and choose a couple ladies to participate. See who can guess all of the correct spices by smell (not taste!!).

Discussion Starters:

  • What is one of the smells you remember most from your childhood?

  • What is the worst smell you have ever encountered?

  • What is your favorite food and why do you like the taste of it?

  • What is the scariest sound you have ever heard?

  • What is something you wish you had never seen with your eyes?

  • What is something you wish you could see in your lifetime? 

  • What is something that you hate the feel of? (could be a fabric, animal, etc.)

  • What is something that you love the feel of?
