Disciples Women's Retreat
The Abe Martin Lodge at Brown County State Park was the perfect setting for the Disciples Women's Retreat, August 23-25, 2019. The weather was beautiful and the mood was positive as we focused on the ideals of peace, justice, and human rights. The theme of "Lift Every Voice" was accented with the singing of "Lift Every Voice and Sing" by James W. Johnson and J. Rosamond Johnson. Jane Beard, Lynn Gosnell, Brooke Smith, and Marcia Lawson enjoyed the messages, discussions, fellowship, and worship of that weekend. Along with about 60 other women from around the state of Indiana, we celebrated women all over the world and were energized by the Keynote Message of Reverend Marilyn Williams, as she spoke about "Faith, Hope, and Liberty." Our friend from Iglesia Hermandad Cristiana, Yahayra Perez, gave an informative and inspirational talk about her trip to Cuba with the Woman-to-Woman Worldwide program. The words of "Lift Every Voice and Sing" will remain in our hearts and minds for a long time to come:
Lift every voice and sing, till earth and heaven ring . . .
