OCTOBER 2021

Happy are those who trust in the Lord, who rely on the Lord.
They will be like trees planted by the streams, whose roots reach down to the water.
They won't fear drought when it comes; their leaves will remain green.
They won't be stressed in the time of drought or fail to bear fruit.
Jeremiah 17:7-8

Recently I hosted a meeting for Daughters of Abraham with the theme: Being comfortable with the uncomfortable. We are living with uncertainty on a daily basis. Our reaction to uncertainty is what is teaching us at the moment. Here are some quotes to stimulate your thinking.

Be comfortable with uncertainty because nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know. - Pema Chodron

Some changes look negative on the surface, but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge. - Eckhart Tolle

As you become comfortable with uncertainty, infinite possibilities open up in your life. - Eckhart Tolle

The group began with an icebreaker:

What is a soul trait or value that you want to develop in these uncertain times and why?

Some of the values that were shared:

  • Patience in all things, waiting for God's guidance.
  • Truly listening to one another with compassion and not anticipating what to say.
  • Do your best and then rest, and let God do the rest, trying not to fix everything.
  • Serenity, being at peace and not entering into the chaos or adding to it.
  • Trusting God to be with us every step of the way.

What is a soul trait or value you want to develop?

May we all learn together to be happy trusting in the Lord.
Amen

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."


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.”
