Thanks be to God! This week “Running the Race … Looking to Jesus,” the LWML 39th Biennial Convention, becomes a reality. LWML sisters and brothers in Christ are assembling in Lexington, Kentucky, to “joyfully proclaim Christ, support missions, and equip women to honor God by serving others” (from the new LWML Mission Statement).
One of the many highlights will be Friday, June 25, when the results of voting for the 2021–2023 mission grants are announced. The delegates voted electronically the last week of May. Waiting with great anticipation, they, along with those attending in person and those watching via livestream, will learn which grants were selected. Learn more about the grant proposals here, and then join in the excitement on June 25 to hear God’s plan for the next biennium.
As attendees at convention, we will:
- Focus on Jesus through God’s Word and Sacrament;
- Joyfully celebrate our salvation with song and prayer; and
- Serve our neighbors through witness and mission.
May we live these convention objectives well beyond our week in Lexington.
