Necessity is the mother of invention — or so the saying goes. As LWML faces the reality that in-person gatherings cannot happen like they have in the past, many new, virtual, and contemporary ways have been found to bring us together to share Christ’s love.

Recently the LWML Atlantic District, an area hit hard by COVID-19, did not let “stay at home” orders dampen their desire to gather with their young women. They held a virtual event which included prayer, a scavenger hunt, celebrating the funding of the district’s mission grant goal, and a speaker who joined from her home in Illinois.

Finding new ways to gather gives us opportunities to include friends who might not attend a “meeting,” but will take an hour to gather online. If you are missing your church and LWML friends, set up a video conference. Enjoy one of our wonderful LWML devotions, sip a cup of coffee from your favorite mug, and reacquaint yourself with these special friends as you each celebrate being a Lutheran Woman in Mission.
