On Tuesday, May 19th, 2009, the women of St. John's gathered together in the evening hours to enjoy a Mother and Daughter event. All women were welcome, and all ages turned up which was lovely. As is normal for this event, much singing, many beautiful poems, some personal reminisces, and a guest speaker were the order of the day.
Our guest speaker was Pastor Loretta of Grace Lutheran and she gave a very powerful talk on Placing Your Life before God, as based on Romans ,Chapter 12. The message was originally done by Eugene Petersen.
Pastor Loretta's talk reminded us that grace means trusting in God, not being dependent on our possessions. She talked about her experiences with various runs, stair climbing expeditions and how she was one of many trying to raise awareness of various diseases and causes by participating in these events.
After Pastor's interesting talk, the programme went on.
The evening ended with the Hospitality Committee serving up another delicious feast for those in attendance to enjoy.
A very worthwhile event to attend, both for spiritual enlightenment, good fellowship and, of course, lovely refreshments.
