AUGUST 2020

“For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds, says the Lord”. Jeremiah 30:17

Recently several of my friends have had time in the hospital for major emergencies which is scary enough but add Covid on top of it. One day all is going along as best as we can through these challenging times and in a moment it can all change.

One may question why is all of this happening, and why are bad things happening to good people. Perhaps you have read the book of this title by Harold S. Kushner? Here is what he says:

‘Maybe God does not cause our suffering. Maybe it happens for some reason other than the will of God. The psalmist writes, “I lift mine eyes to the hills; from where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, maker of Heaven and earth.” (Psalm 121:1–2) He does not say, “My pain comes from the Lord,” or “my tragedy comes from the Lord.” He says “my help comes from the Lord.” Harold S. Kushner from When Bad Things Happen to Good People.

Every night my husband and I pray for each one of our friends by name and know in our hearts that prayer is vital to our lives. We are living through some dark times but we know that: ‘The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.’ John 1:5.

Whatever you are experiencing now, fear of the future, anxiety of livelihood, fear of illness, grief, know you are not alone. I also had a health issue and I kept saying this verse just before a surgery, it calmed me and gave me strength. May it help you. Amen.

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27 NIV)

EVENTS

Women at the Well

Congregational Church in Manhasset

1845 Northern Boulevard, Manhasset, NY 11030

(516) 627-4911

Women at the Well is an excellent opportunity to experience a community of women who care. Here is what Rev. Lori Burgess who leads the group recently described her thoughts about Women at the Well.

"I think about how often our world feels defeating and the issues overwhelming. But I think too about the moments that we leave our time together feeling a little bit better about the world. Often I know I leave believing in the goodness of others and believing a little more in myself to make positive change. This is the gift of WATW. As we walk our own unique paths, we find comfort in each other. We find solace in the notion that love always wins."

We will be on Summer break and will resume in September.


People are talking about speaker Tessa Afshar's conference!


Here is a short clip from Tessa at last year's retreat. Listen how effective she is in her message to us!

Also, watch a short clip where Lisa is telling a terrific little story about the Daughters of Zelophehad from the book of Numbers in the Old Testament. This changed the course of history for inheritance for women!

What women are saying about Seeds of Faith For Women

“Reading about women in the Bible, together with the women in my everyday life, has been so satisfying and helped us connect to each other, and our community, in significant ways.

 “Having a group of women to discuss our Christian experience and hear different points of view enriches my faith life.”

“I love being a member of Seeds of Faith For Women. The books and discussions have offered me a new understanding of Christ as we study through the eyes of powerful women of the Bible.”
