Introducing our 2016 ECW Board
Message from our President, Lisa Martin... Reflections....
I don't know about you, but I often lose perspective on why I do what I feel I have been called to do. As I take time to reflect, I remind myself that I pursue my ministry only to give glory to God. We go about awarding scholarships in the hopes that the women we touch will be touched by God and that they in turn, may touch others in the spirit of God. We develop Convocational Gatherings to enrich our fellow women in the word of God. We toil to create an Annual Retreat that will provide a respite for those who need spiritual nourishment. We bind ourselves together as a board so that we may strengthen our belief in God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost and through His Spirit lift up our sisters during times of joy and times of darkness. May God grant us wisdom to do His will.
Almighty God, Heavenly Father, source of all knowledge and truth, be present with each of us meeting together as the Women of the Episcopal Church. Grant us open minds, compassionate hearts, honest words and gentle ways. Give us the grace to know your will, the courage to accept it and the strength to accomplish it. May we not forget the lessons from the past nor fear the challenges of the future. Bless us with your peace today and all the days to come, and may we ever pray, "Thy will be done". We live in your presence and pray in your Holy Name. Amen
