Perhaps some of you have read the dialogue on the Small Groups Forum, about Women’s Ministry. If not, I encourage you to go there, and read through the post by Freda Kennedy, as well as all of the follow up comments. There are some great ideas percolating there. The concept that is being discussed is the nature of Women’s Ministry that often includes Coffee Break, but can be so much more.
I am doing a workshop on this theme, this Saturday (Oct. 15) at our Day of Encouragement, in Hamilton, ON. I look forward to an open dialogue about Women’s Ministry, as we wrestle with the dynamics of our changing cultural context. It’s important to keep the dialogue going as we seek to do relational ministry with women to bless the neighbourhoods and communities in which we’ve been planted. I hope we’ll see where Coffee Break fits, with a new twist. I am certain we’ll learn some things about ministry today. If you’re in southern Ontario, perhaps you’ll join us. www.diaconalministries.com
I welcome your thoughts about a broader perspective on Women’s Ministry. What shape does it take in your church? What are you doing in your Coffee Break or in addition to it, to share the love of Jesus with others in your church and community?
