his November we completed our 16th LifeWay Women Leadership Forum and it was the best ever according to attendees! I always have a blast being with these leaders and hope you will attend next year! Click this link to find out dates.
We asked attendees to share their ministries that have been planned or have already been successful at connecting the generations. I will share those in several blog posts so you can see what is working. Please tell us what you are doing to connect the generations. Here are two more.
Nancy shares about an outdoor event for the adventurous!:
Our ministry began as an outreach ministry to all of the women in our community. Our vision is to unite women of all ages and denominations through events hosted outside the boundaries of the church walls. Our most recent event was a hike. We hiked through a stream, with our guides posting themselves in the middle to point out the stable rocks, provide a hand for balance and encourage those who were afraid. We hiked up steep trails, ensuring not one was left behind, cheering on those who did not think they could make it. We each walked along with someone we had not met before and gave them a chance to share their lives with a safe traveling partner. Finally, we arrived at a beautiful water fall and shared a meal together, surrounded by God’s amazing creation: wildflowers, butterflies, mountain peaks, mountain critters, various trees and the wonder of His greatest creation-women! After the exhausting hike, one of our guides treated us all to ice cream at a local favorite burger place. As we sat around sharing ice cream, our thoughts for the day, our struggles in life – relationships were built. What a grand day it was.
