    Vice President’s Blog 28th July 2021
    July 28, 2021 Hilary Evans

    ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.’ Philippians 4:13

     

    The time has come to pass on responsibility for writing the presidential blog. Ruth and I agreed some weeks ago to make the change at the beginning of August, as we worked around respective holidays.

    So, I thought I would try to present some thoughts in a different way. Below are a few haiku [short poems in a traditional Japanese style using three lines of text. The first and third contain seven syllables and the second five syllables.]

    Two years of writing have passed

    As Covid nineteen

    Spread through our nation and world.

     

    On-line communications

    Responded to need

    To keep us in connection.

     

    From Conference to YouTube,

    Zoom meetings: a blog,

    Our values stay consistent.

     

    For women, for justice, for Christ,

    The message remains

    The driver for all we do.

     

    Time for a new blog writer,

    Passing on the role

    Keeping M WiB in contact.

     

    As Ruth takes up the baton

    We offer support,

    And we hold her in prayer.
