In our Café we’re asking young women to leave a tip. Not money, although one young woman pulled out her wallet, ready to give a cash tip. No, we’re asking the women to tell us what would inspire them to get involved in Women of the ELCA.
We learned so much from the young women in 2006 when we asked this question that we knew we had to repeat it here in New Orleans. And we’re not disappointed. Read on for some of these priceless tips.
What would inspire you to get involved in Women of the ELCA?
“Even though the churchwide is attempting to make WELCA geared for young women, local churches are not. Help them out – we are yearning for this.”
“Programs that were advertised – I never see anything for this. Also, maybe try to attract a younger generation with a variety of activities.”
“More activities for young adults or intentional activities to bridge the age gap.”
“Younger leadership within our synod!”
“Initiatives and programs for young adult women.”
“Young women in my age range, 25-35-ish.”
“Activities that enhance social justice – geared toward working women’s schedules!”
Let those who have ears hear.
