Disciples Women Corner — November 2020
By Carla Pearson, KDW Coordinator
It is said the only thing constant in life is change and 2020 has certainly provided us with an abundance of change. We have learned to attend church via YouTube, Zoom or Facebook. We order groceries online; we wear a mask and refrain from travel. Unable to meet in person for worship, many of our churches have created a calling tree to check in with members of our congregations.
In visiting with a Disciples Women friend, she shared that one person on her calling list was someone she had never met in person. Although they attend the same church, they participate in different worship times. As they visited, she learned they share similar interests, and she is anxious for the time when they can meet in person to grow their friendship. What started as an assigned task in a time of change resulted in the blessing of a new friend.
As we enter the season of Thanksgiving, we will give thanks for the blessings of family and friends; for shelter and food; for sunshine and rain. But maybe, as we count our blessings, we can include some unexpected blessings that came in the midst of change.
