One Woman's Creed
by Frances Somerville
I believe in God,
creator of the universe
dwelling forever beyond time and space.
I believe in Jesus Christ
who came to live among us
and let us see what God is like.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
sent from God through Jesus
to be our guide and comforter.
Therefore I believe in love,
in hope, compassion, joy and faith,
and forgiveness and eternal life.
A Prayer for Women's Ministry
by The Rev. Peg Williams, ECW Chicago Chaplain 2012-2015
Most awesome God,
women are and have always been among the first to volunteer,
the first to organize, and the first to use their network of friends in Christ
to accomplish good works.
We give you thanks for bringing us together – women who are willing
to contribute their considerable skill to the advancement of your church
and to the world.
We ask that you support and guide us,
and allow each of us to be strengthened by the inspiration of our sisters.
All this we ask in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
