Quite a busy day! It began with a fun time at a Women of the ELCA Lenten Brunch. The theme - making a joyful noise for the Lord. Well-planned, good food, and an entertaining speaker and MC made for a fun time.
Then, a helpful Council Retreat. Faithful leaders, deep discussion, and a desire to do God’s will means I/we can look forward to another good year. We began the retreat time with a chance to get to know one another a little better. One of the questions we were all invited to answer: when have you trusted God? The sharing was inspiring, reminding me that the ways of God are not coincidences - no, they are “God-cidences.” And it warmed my heart to hear the sharing.
Then, to top off the day, some helpful reminders of how to hopefully comfort someone grieving. Hope this blog helps you, too: For a Grieving Friend.
