"A GATHERING OF WOMEN"

June News Update by Tanya Lopez, Regional Disciples Women Staff

 

holy heat

It is the time of the year when the days get longer and hotter. For people with young or school aged children, school is out and the time to keep children busy and active kicks into high gear. College students are also off and so there is a lot of time to fill with friends, with travel, with leisure. Many people use the summer months to vacation with family and to squeeze in more fun into their days. In many of our churches and many of our ministries this season brings about either lots of activity, or things slow down a bit.

 

While there are a great many things happening regionally in our church as well as at the general level, there are some churches that experience activities slowing down during this time. With people vacationing and having family over sometimes church attendance fluctuates. Some churches see a rush of activity during this time with vacation bible schools being planned and many youth activities planned. We tend to view and plan for this time of the year based mostly on the summer season and what that physically lends itself to. But we as a church enter another very important season during this time of the year; we experience Pentecost!

 

Pentecost is the day that commemorates the coming of the holy spirit and the birth of the church! We typically celebrate this and have worship services that focus on this for just one Sunday. We wear red, we read the scriptures that tell us of that day when tongues of fire came down upon the disciples. We celebrate the many that were added to the church and the very beginnings of the church! It was and continues to be a very powerful day for us as Christians. But far too often, we celebrate this one day, and fail to carry that holy heat, that holy fire with us throughout the rest of this season.

 

During this busy time in our families and churches, not only should we be busy with programming and activities, but we should also be on fire! We should be seeking new inspiration, new  connections with God and each other. We should have a rekindling of the passion we have for what God has called us to do. In this season of Pentecost and Summer, the Regional Disciples Women’s Ministry will be actively seeking the keep that fire burning. So, that in all that we do, in all that we plan, and in all the ways in which we will gather and work together, be it at General Assembly this Summer, at our Next Regional Women’s Event, or within our own work as women of the church, we are constantly bringing that holy heat with us and passing it on to others.

 

We are excited about this season in the church! We welcome the longer warmer days and the holy heat that comes with it! We ask God to set us on fire for the work we are called to do. To help lift up women, to advocate for justice, to make a difference in our communities, to speak up for those without a voice, to continue to love and be a healing force for all.

 

So, as you plan and fill your days during these next few weeks, remember to also be filled with the holy fire and to carry that holy heat into everything that you do! There is so much to be excited for! My prayer is that you are filled and used in powerful ways and that together we will be busy and ablaze with sprit-filled work.

 

Amen.
