As I write this Ive just finished reading a letter from the UK. I received the letter the old fashion way and as some would say by ‘snail mail’. It was a lovely letter from one of my parent’s dear friends. His name is Derek and he is 85 years old. My parents past away many years ago however, Derek and I still manage to keep in contact. The last words Derek wrote in his letter were, “Please keep in touch….”
It’s funny that we as humans like to stay connected. We like to stay connected with our family and friends even across the generations. The word ‘connect’ actually means joined or linked together by a common bond. I love the way our church family stay connected.
Our vision for the Women’s Ministry this year is all about staying connected. Women are great on the relational front. We love connecting, whether it’s through social media or having a catch up over a coffee or lunch. They say if you put two women together in a room they will always find someway to connect.
Kirryn Zerna in her role as the Women’s Coordinator did a wonderful job in connecting women. I remember her slogan was “we are better together!” So as we move into a new season of Women’s ministry and you’re a woman reading this, remember to stay connected with each other and most of all stay connected to Jesus.
“Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:4-5)
