Responsively Yours: Representing God’s Love by Harriett Jane Olson
01/01/2014 If we weren’t already a structured organization, how would we come together to act on the commitments of our faith in 2014? We might start by noticing what women in United Methodist congregations have in common—our faith in God and in the work of Jesus in our own lives; our tendency to be keen observers of the communities, states and nation in which we live; and our desire to make the world a place in which we and other women, children and youth may thrive.
Cordialmente Suya: Representando el Amor de Dios by /por Harriett Jane Olson
01/01/2014 Si no fuéramos una organización ya estructurada, ¿cómo nos uniríamos para abogar por los compromisos de nuestra fe en el año 2014? Podríamos empezar por darnos cuenta de lo que las mujeres en las congregaciones metodistas unidas tenemos en común: nuestra fe en Dios y en la obra de Jesús en nuestras propias vidas, nuestra tendencia a ser agudas observadoras de las comunidades, los estados y la nación en la que vivimos, y nuestro deseo de hacer que el mundo sea un lugar donde las mujeres, incluso nosotras mismas, la niñez y la juventud puedan progresar.

Peace and Refugees Around the World
12/18/2013 Refugees are people who are forced to leave their home country due to war and violence, seeking peace in a foreign country. The Christmas season is associated with the coming of Jesus to bring peace to the earth. One of the ways that peace is made today is by welcoming refugees into a new, safe community. You can take action to help integrate refugees and migrants, and support their quest for employment, education and wellbeing.
Responsively Yours: Signs of Emmanuel by Harriett Jane Olson
11/25/2013 Have you ever looked for a street sign in an unfamiliar place and been unable to find one? We look where we think the sign “should” be. I’ve been in towns where the signs are on the corners of the buildings and in towns where they hang in the middle of the street. Once you see one and understand where to look, you can find them easily. Often if we expect the signs to be black and white, we can’t see the green or brown ones that are right there. It can be difficult to see the signs when we “know” what we expect to see.
