There’s resilience among the women who love Women of the ELCA. I’ve heard stories of how women are staying connected via the internet. There’s a congregational unit in Pennsylvania that gets together virtually for the Gather magazine Bible study. The Virginia Synodical Women’s Organization had a big Thankoffering service online. And who knows how many other circles and units and synodical organizations are using the phones and the internet to stay spiritually together? Thanks be to God—and to the creativity and resilience of God’s people—we can keep in touch in more ways than we ever could have before.
Last year was hard, but we don’t have to face it without our sisters. We can connect by phone, by mail, by email, and online. Let’s make a point of it. Let’s stay connected.
This message is an excerpt from a Women of the ELCA devotion by Audrey Novak Riley. Today we celebrate the Ascension of Our Lord.
