It was not a good time for our church. Our pastor left and took forty percent of our congregation with him to start a new church in town. Martha said to me, “You need to come to LWML meetings. We don’t have enough people left.”
I thought that LWML was for “old ladies.” After all, my grandmother belonged, and my mom joined when she was in her 70s. I was only in my 30s! But I went because Martha asked me. I got hooked.
What was a bad time for our church, turned out to be a wonderful time for me. I gained new friends and a new focus. I did not have time to look back and bemoan the bad times.
Invite women to your LWML activities. Let the Holy Spirit do His work. Assure the women that they will receive blessings far beyond measure!
but few things are needed ‑ or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her (Luke 10:42 NIV).
