Heart to Heart Sisters
At the 2019 LWML Convention in Mobile, Alabama, Marilyn McClure was invited to be the presenter at a banquet for Heart to Heart Sisters District Leader trainees and their district presidents. At the invitation of the 2019–2021 national Heart to Heart Sisters Committee, she created two educational videos based on her presentation. Watch them here.
The LWML Atlantic District shared how their district embraces the Heart to Heart Sisters program. District President Linda Guteres conveyed her reflections and the reflections of some of her leadership team members in the article “Heart to Heart Sisters in the Kingdom of God.” Linda describes her district as a “stunning mosaic of people glued together by their faith as they work guided by their Leader Jesus Christ.” Read the full article with your local group to prompt discussion about embracing the Heart to Heart Sisters program in your local, regional, or district LWML.
The purpose of the Heart to Heart Sisters Committee is to:
- Motivate, equip, challenge, and provide mentoring opportunities within the LWML for women of diverse ethnic groups to serve the church, participate in LWML, witness to the world, and grow in relationships.
- Produce and facilitate the Heart to Heart Sisters District Leaders program for the LWML Convention.
- Provide resources to facilitate the Heart to Heart Sisters District program.
The LWML recognizes there are gifted multicultural women serving with joy and passion in many multicultural ministries throughout The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.
We are committed to assisting LWML Districts in establishing Heart to Heart Sisters programs so multicultural women may mutually encourage one another, support each other, and work together, living out the beautiful diversity that is the body of Christ.
