Ladies Event at Ulverstone Baptist
Tuesday 30th November 2021
The evening went off! Attending on the night were 93 women to hear speaker, Amanda Cox, talk about belief systems.
Many of the women at Ulverstone Baptist invited their friends and family members. The talk was both inspiring and challenging, and the delicious supper afterwards was a great time to share some treats and good conversation with friends.
Congratulations to Gabe Fife and her team for pulling off a wonderful pre-Christmas event.
Action for You
Thinking outside your box
It’s both an interesting and challenging time in Tasmania. COVID has caught up with us! No matter where you are in the pandemic journey, it’s always good to connect with others to encourage, and intentionally create a safe space to engage.
So . . . who can you catch up with, one-on-one? Who do you know who might need someone to talk to? You could go out for coffee. Meet at the park. Call someone up. Or, make an effort to connect more deeply after church.
These can become moments of connection, support and encouragement for both you and your friend or family member. Maybe you could even offer to pray for them, or ask them to pray for you?
There are many ways you can interact to make sure others are cared for during this time.
It’s a time to be the blessing!
Praying for Alice
By Jenny Baxter, Tasmanian Director, EmpowHer
Praying for Alice became my lifetime passion
While my life flashed before my eyes, I sat in the Spanish winter sunshine, nervously waiting for the bride, our Alice, to be given away.
Well, it wasn’t my life exactly. It was pieces of Alice’s life I’d kept close in my heart. Moments I had participated in, helped with, and cried over.
The memories flickered through my mind like precious flowers, once fresh but now pressed, faded and time-worn.
