  1. This is great. Why didn’t I know about it sooner, like 2005. After 27 years of ministry, I am retiring at the end of September. But I am joining anyway. Looking forward to the conversations.

  3. How do. I, a non-blogger, submit a question for “Ask the Matriarch?” Maybe it’s that I cannot see it from my ipad, using Safari, but please help! I’ve got a question! 🙂

  6. Dear Martha,
    If that book has not been sent to the woman in the United Methodist Women in charge of the Reading List, it should be. The lessons and insights learned therein are many. It would be perfect for the Leadership Category.

    If you want more information about this, I can send it or check on the Web at http://www.umw.org and you’ll find bunches of stuff.
    Send to:

    Reading Program Specialist

    Here’s hoping it works out for the book.

    Shalom,

  7. Hi, Carolyn~
    Our publisher is in touch with the women who develop the Reading List. My understanding is we were too late for this year but will be under consideration for the following list. Thank you so much for your support! I think it would be great if you let someone know you recommend the book.
    Faithfully,

  8. Greetings in the name of our dear Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,

    I am Nehru Naik, I am native of small and backward village NVK THANDA,
    Peddavoora Manadal, Nalagonda District, telagana India. I am
    born in a very poor family, my parents were daily wage labours. I
    belong to Schedule Tribe community which is most neglected community
    in the society.

    Voice calling me ” I NEED YOU MY SON”, I looked here and there but no
    one was there. I opened the BIBLE, God spoke to me through the
    scriptures, Nahum :1:15. According the Scripture I decided to search
    the Gospel to the unreached areas of our society. And started
    preaching the gospel in the year 1992 till now preached 24 villages of
    our surroundings after taking Bible Training in collage and
    established achurch, where saints are worshiping regularly.

    One day while mediating the God’s word, God spoken with me by the
    Scripture James 1:27 to care of orphan children. Hence, we have
    started small orphanage with 10.orphans by providing food, shelter,
    education.

    We request you to kindly pray for these children as they need of
    school books, bags & fees. We love you to invite you to come to our
    children home whenever you visit India.

    With much love &

  9. So interested to hear and read more. I am ordained in the Evangelical Covenant Church. I am a pastor who serves mostly outside organized churches. Not because that was what I wanted, but because it was incredibly hard to find placement without leaving family that needed me close by. So my ministry is varied, and many times it is in conversation with the “nones and dones” who need to be heard and find God in their story.
