LWQ Winter 2014

Winter 2014   Saying the Right Words

Winter Lutheran Women's Quarterly cover

From the Editor...

If you are a regular reader of the Quarterly, you may have already noticed this issue is thicker and the articles are arranged differently.

The President’s column, to your right on page 1, is usually found on the last page. When you reach the last page, you will spot the mission grants updates, which are typically located in the centerfold. And in the centerfold, you will discover the reason for this switch up: a special insert inviting you to join with your sisters (and brothers) in mission at the Des Moines LWML Convention, June 25–28, 2015.

The Winter LWQ, “Saying the Right Words,” walks you through the lives of your sisters in Christ as they recount times of hearing words that brought them either great healing or considerable pain. Their experiences have taught me so much.

As we enter the Advent season and approach Christmas, let us recall another Right Word: the Word made flesh, the Word Incarnate — Jesus Christ the Lord.
