listening to: Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee
thought for the day: The soul can split the sky in two and let the face of God shine through. ~Edna St. Vincent Millay
Today the officers for the United Methodist Women’s group in my church were inducted into their leadership roles during our Sunday service. As each woman was called to the front, it dawned on me that I knew half of them before I even began attending this particular church. Their involvement in the community is humbling, without judgment, and reaches past religious boundaries. For me, this means everything. I’m a Christian, but I’m not the greatest in behaving as Jesus would have me behave. The good news though is that I am surrounded by women, not just in my church but in neighboring churches as well, who set a standard that IS Jesus-worthy. The world needs more of these women. I’m grateful they are in my life and it really has nothing and everything to do with being a Christian.
