I am convinced that women are very relational. We love to meet for coffee or lunch and to share with each other what’s going on in our lives. That’s also how we do ministry – in a very relational way.
Yet at times I struggle to find my own place in community. For various reasons living in community has its challenges as well as its blessings. We live in a culture that is increasingly consumeristic and individualistic. And life is so busy! Yet as God’s people, made for community, I hope we can look to God’s Word and hear His promptings. Perhaps together, we can strive for community that is ‘counter cultural’. I hope that in these pages, we can wrestle together some new ways of engaging God’s truth, so that it informs our ministry to women in our churches and in our communities.
I celebrate the uniqueness of women, in a way that honours the individual nature with which we all journey through life. Each of us have unique gifts. We serve in different ways. We have varying amounts of time to give, and various places in which we might have influence. As women sharing together I hope that we can grow in our understanding and practice of what it means to integrate our faith into our life in the neighbourhood.
I welcome your comments, as we journey together.
