The story of God’s leadership through WMU is a story worth telling. And the telling of a story that is 125 years old it is worth repeating.
I remember the day in 2002 that I met Nancy Tilley. She was one of four folks who interviewed me to be the Site Coordinator of the new Christian Women’s Job Corps site in Knox County, Tennessee. She had a bright smile and sparkling eyes that reflected the fact that she belonged to Jesus. She asked me questions that revealed a true dedication to bettering the lives of the marginalized populations we had both worked with in our professional lives. This was a woman of great faith, compassion, and intelligence.
I recently returned from a trip to Israel. What an experience! It was nothing like I expected, and God spoke to me in ways I could not have anticipated.
We've had a number of questions about the book club Shades of REaD. Where is it? What's going on?
I have two children who are young teenagers. It’s fascinating to me to watch them begin to define themselves and set standards for themselves. We’re having conversations about how much we will spend on tennis shoes and when it’s ok to where eye shadow. It’s funny how the right pair of tennis shoes or wearing eye shadow makes a huge difference in their self esteem.
I know it’s all typical of teenagers. I remember when I was like that about clothes and makeup.
The thing is, I wonder if we ever grow out of it . . .
