St. Photini Sunday....It's tough being a Woman

This coming Sunday we are hosting a woman led Sunday in honor of the woman at the well St. Photini. We will have a group of ladies speaking, representing the different generations at Jacob's Well. The goal of this sunday will be to show that every woman at every season of life; can develop a relationship with the Lord and be on mission. The trick is getting new eyes to see that mission isnt something outside your day to day life, but its living your life with purpose and creativity. Seeing each activity as a natural path toward glorifying God and sharing Him by either word or deed. Looking for ways to rest in Him at each season. Understanding that serving the Lord as single student, career employee, nursing mom, toddle chaser, struggling wife of preschoolers, or as an empty nester or elder with lots of time but little energy is the art of learning to live from a center of grace and attentiveness.We want to help women see that Spiritual formation and mission are integrated into all our daily lives. We are in Jesus and everything we do is in Him and becomes kingdom filled. Our work is seeing that, hearing that and participating with the Spirit in the everydayness of mission. Dishes, conversations, school, birthday parties, coffee times, work parties, lunch breaks, the gym, the grocery store, mommies groups, doctor's offices, business trips, training days, college dorms, professors and coworkers, meals, recreation, hospitality....everything is included in the mix.

God is in it all and can be found through it all....every season has its opportunities and challenges.

"...For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise." -Galatians 3:27-29
