American Baptist Women’s Ministries of New York State has been looking for you.
My name is Lillian Cabral and I am the newly elected President of American Baptist Women’s Ministries of New York State. This is a challenging honor and privilege to lead this wonderful group of Sisters in Christ to explore together the adventures offered to us by the Lord Jesus Christ.
We are in our second year of our two year theme:
See what God can do in your life.
See the blessings God has given you.
Taste and see that God is good!
See the beauty of this earth.
See the seasons; the beauty of re-birth in Spring, the long days of Summer when we can relax and enjoy the outdoors, the beauty of color in Autumn, and the beauty of a fresh fallen snow in Winter.
I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us.
We recently met for our annual gathering in Owego and had an awesome time as we listened and learned from the Rev. Dr. Christine Roush as she taught from the book of Isaiah chapter 43 verses 18-19.
“Forget the old things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?”
God is doing a new thing.
What does “doing a new thing” mean to you? If we are doing something different we are changing the way “we have always done it”. Everywhere I turn and everyone I encounter is pointing to change.
Change- the mere mention of the word strikes fear into the hearts of the “establishment” of any group of people. Look around; God loves variety and change. Nothing stays the same forever.
My hope and prayer is that you hop on board as we follow Jesus and aggressively pursue God’s plan for change in us; as a group and as individuals.
