    지금과 같은 시대를 위한 리더십 여러분의 몫입니다.

    지금과 같은 시대를 위한 리더십 여러분의 몫입니다.

    새해의 시작은 새로운 책임이 부과되는 때이기도 합니다. 특별한 상황을 맞이한 올 해, 우리의 일상적인 패턴을 따르는 것은 생명을 위협하는 질병으로부터 서로와 우리 자신을 보호해야 할 책임이 추가됨으로써 새로운 차원의 복잡성을 갖게 됩니다. 한편 우리의 영적 건강에 관해 생각해 보자면, 기본부터 시작하기에 좋은 시기입니다.

    The Impact of Faith

    The Impact of Faith

    United Methodist Women members have many things in common. First and foremost, we are women of faith who desire to put our faith into action. We know the power of faith-filled action. We see it again and again in our mission work. We witness its impact.

    From time to time we need to step back and acknowledge the impact Christ guides us and enables us to make as United Methodist Women.

    A Creative, Supportive Fellowship

    A Creative, Supportive Fellowship

    Diane Jackson has been a member of United Methodist Women for more than 50 years. She grew up Presbyterian but joined The United Methodist Church in her early twenties. She became a part of United Methodist Women because her mother and grandmother were active in their church’s women’s group, and she knew it would be a place she could find learning and support. She is currently the president of United Methodist Women at First United Methodist Church in Santa Rosa, California.

    Jackson, who is also head of the church’s Volunteers in Mission Program, was put into a leadership role right away.

    “The first Sunday I came to church I asked, ‘Do you have a women’s group?’ And I was directed to a real go-getter lady,” Jackson said. “I went to their Christmas tea, and she asked me if I was new. I said, ‘Yes.’ And she said, ‘We have a position on our board that you can fill.’ I left that first meeting part of the United Methodist Women’s leadership team.” Jackson has also served on district leadership teams and started several young women’s circles.

    United Methodist Women Mission Priorities 2021-2024

    United Methodist Women is a bold, diverse and dynamic community of Christian women working together to grow spiritually, live out their faith and make a difference in their communities and world, especially on behalf of women, children and youth. Together members focus on social justice issues and actions to make a collective positive impact. In recent years, the organization has named four focuses. For the 2021-2024 quadrennium, United Methodist Women will have two mission priorities: climate justice and criminalization of communities of color and mass incarceration, with particular focus on the Just Energy for All and Interrupting the School-to-Prison Pipeline campaigns.

    감사하는 마음을 주소서. 여러분의 몫입니다.

    감사하는 마음을 주소서. 여러분의 몫입니다.

    어린 시절, 할머니는 저에게 다음과 같이 기도하라고 가르치셨습니다. “전능하신 하나님, 저희에게 베풀어주신 모든 은혜에 감사드립니다.” 조부모님 댁에서 저녁 식사를 하기 전에 우리가 드린 감사의 기도였습니다. 저는 그것을 "할머니의 감사 기도"라고 불렀습니다. 이 기도는 이번 시즌에 저에게 특별한 울림을 줍니다. 우리 가운데 많은 사람들이 슬픔을 겪고 있습니다. 우리는 가족을 잃었습니다. 우리는 함께 축하하거나 슬퍼하고 싶을 때 사랑하는 사람들과 물리적으로 거리를 두어야 했습니다. 많은 사람들이 일자리를 잃었으며, 질병을 앓고 있습니다. 인근 시설 중 일부가 문을 닫았습니다. 우리는 계획을 포기해야 했습니다. 이와 같이 우리가 겪고 있는 어려움들을 나열하자면 끝이 없습니다.
