Guest Speaker: Jane Searcy, President of Province IV: "Listening for and Hearing God's Call"
God calls us every day through experience and relationships. We have to listen and be open to hear the call. We have a ministry of being. We must think of who we are (Daughters of the King) and whose we are (children of God). We are all part of God's plan. What is God calling us to do in his plan. Listen with the ear of your heart. Be still and know that I am God. In today's words it would be: "Stop this worry, I am God - I've got this and I've got you.
October 6-8 Will be the Province IV Assembly via Zoom.
