  • It's Census Time!

    Dear District M,N, and O, Mission Coordinators 

       Our CTC numbers for reporting our census are very low.  That means that those who are reporting for each individual UMW local group, have not yet turned in their census. Please send an email to each of your local presidents, please do this as soon as you can get to a computer to complete this task. The Link is listed below:

Lenten Letter from Rome


 

I’ve been in Italy for a week now and have seen a multitude of beautifully decorated cathedrals.  But what do I long to see – my church with unadorned walls and ceilings, my friends who speak a language I can understand, my husband and family, whom I dearly love and eat simple, home-cooked meals.  These are what I look forward to experiencing.

Lent has been a great time to be in Italy.  I’ve had time to focus on the Holy.  The unbelievable artwork visually conceptualizing the story of Jesus heightened my awareness of his life and his sacrifice for each of us.  Thus making way for the glory of the resurrection on Easter Sunday.

I hope each of you is allowing time for study and reflection during this Lenten season.  Perhaps you’re also doing something special each day. Maybe you’re making a phone call to a loved one, writing a note of appreciation for a kindness done, creating a special time for prayer and meditation or even taking a walk each day and praying for your neighbors as you pass their homes.

There are many ways to experience the Holy.  One great way is to attend the CTC UMW Spiritual Growth Retreat March 28-29 at Lakeview Camp and Conference Center.  Come and be a part of this blessed experience.  Register now at ctcumw.org.  Call me if you want more information at 817-293-3393.  Remember to ask FRAN, your friends, relatives, acquaintances and neighbors to join you.  “Make it Happen” is the theme for Assembly April 25-27 in Louisville, KY.  You can still register at ctcumw.org and there’s room on the bus for you. 

Reflect, renew, and be restored.

 

Linda Hutchings

CTC UMW President
