Dear LWML Leaders,
Confidence in Christian leadership is being grounded in the Word.
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near (Hebrews 10:24–25).
It can be difficult to get a group together. Busy schedules, young children, health issues, and even the weather can keep women away from your LWML gatherings. It can be really frustrating to have a great agenda and program planned and then only have a couple of people come. Sometimes you wonder why you even bother to schedule a meeting.
The Bible reminds us, For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them (Matthew 18:20). Even if only two or three women are able to attend, have your events and encourage those women. Consider having a meeting or Bible study using video conferencing like Zoom to reach out to some who are unable to leave home. Make use of the Mailbox Member Program to encourage the women in your congregation who don’t normally come. You could also visit someone who is unable to attend. Bring a treat and a devotion and spend some time together. Time spent sharing in the love of Christ is never wasted time. You will all be blessed and encouraged and want to share that love with others.
