In a time of disquiet, it is the song of the soul that reminds us of Love's grace.
Song of Songs 2:10-13
My beloved spoke and said to me,
“Arise, my darling,
my beautiful one, come with me.
See! The winter is past;
the rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves
is heard in our land.
The fig tree forms its early fruit;
the blossoming vines spread their fragrance.
Arise, come, my darling;
my beautiful one, come with me.”
Special Guest Speaker
Bishop Gregory V. Palmer
We are proud to honor Bishop Palmer for his commitment and dedication to the people of the United Methodist Church and the women of United Women in Faith. He has served as an advocate for justice and peace for more than 50 years, and his service is an example of what can be achieved through hope, faith, and love in action. We thank Bishop Palmer for his many years of service.
The Annual Celebration of West Ohio United Women in Faith is a great opportunity to come together in-person to celebrate the accomplishments of our organization. Participants from across the conference gather to share ideas, fellowship, and celebrate our mission of justice and service. The event is also a great way to discover new ways to make a difference in our communities.
We are filled with joy to be gathering again in-person for our Annual Celebration. Our theme, the “Season of Singing” was chosen because for thousands of years singing is the way we have connected to the holy and to each other. And so, songs we know and have loved will be woven throughout the program to lift up each of the special moments we will be celebrating together. We look forward to seeing you at this sacred gathering of sisters.
Voting to accept the 2024 Standing Rules, Budget, and Slate is open now and will close on October 1.
