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

Sensational Ladies Meeting
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.
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!!).
