United Methodist Women is a nationwide organization whose purpose is to foster spiritual growth, develop leaders and advocate for justice. Members raise funds each year for programs and projects related to women, children and youth in the United States and in more than 100 countries around the world.
United Methodist Women’s theme and programs for Sept. 2019—Aug. 2020 are entitled “Let Your Light Shine—Ignited for Justice.” We will study biblical passages on light from the Old and New Testaments and will consider these questions: What does light mean for us? Where have we seen God’s light shine in and around us? How can we shine a light on issues that cause anxiety daily? How can we bring abundant life to those on the margins? Where are we seeing God’s presence in the midst of darkness? What spiritual disciplines nourish/bring light to our souls? We will be emboldened by the Light of Life and the Word that give us hope to practice justice in the world.
