“UMW Sisterhood”
May 5, 2014, 9:41 AM

During my recent trip to Italy I had time to read the last two issues of response magazine.  I’m always so excited about the work of the women and impressed with the creativity of the projects described.  I want to encourage each local UMW organization to send in an article to “Bright Lights” describing what your local group has done and include a photo or two.  I know you’re doing great things following the servant role of Jesus because I’ve seen them listed on the Mission Today forms.  Please set that as a goal for this year.

United Methodist Women are movers and shakers.  We have power when we bind together on issues that help women, children, youth and the disenfranchised.  We should all write letters or call our legislators on important issues as well as being active locally.  Work for justice!  “Let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever flowing stream.”  Amos 5:24

Remember the four focus areas for this quadrennium: immigration, domestic violence, human trafficking and climate control.  Help to educate your UMW and your church about these four priorities.  See what action you can take to help bring about change.  We still have the CTC UMW t-shirts that say “Make It Happen” available for $15.  Call or email me if you’d like one.
