How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” - Isaiah 52:7

The Connection is almost here. It's coming up on Tuesday, October 25 at 7pm. What is the Connection you ask? It's our first large women's gathering of this year. Come – you will be blessed with an opportunity to sit with other women, enjoy a yummy snack, connect with others and listen to an inspiring story from a woman in our midst.

Our hope is that you will walk away blessed and refreshed. Women's ministry exists to encourage women to walk with God. Something special happens when we choose to come out of our shells and connect together. This will be an easy task for some of you. For others, this will be an action step that might feel like work or a lot like anxiety. Please know you are not alone. I challenge you to take a step forward. If you can let one person know how you feel and ask them to sit with you that might offer you a little relief.

Speaking of taking a step: Pictured today are our speaker's feet. If I was a southerner, I'd say, "Aren't they just precious, just look at those sweet pink shoe laces." Our mystery speaker has a little spunk, I think. She's someone that will perhaps feel a twinge of anxiety to be behind the microphone and up in front of us. She's choosing to not focus on that but instead focus on the story God has asked her to tell. She is excited to share with us!

May God reign in all our lives. May His spirit fill our auditorium. May His desires for us to love one another and unify bring us together. Amen.
