What an amazing gathering at Swanwick! Such an encouragement to meet with Methodist women of every type and age, all coming to work and pray together during this conference about peace and the way of the cross. I was only able to be there for a morning session, when we explored some of the Biblical texts and sought to listen to those on the margins. There was an open sharing , a willingness to be vulnerable, courage to face truth and pay the price, and always the ability to laugh as well. Thank you for inviting me to be part of this. Thank you for being women of faith and love. Thank you for walking the way of the cross and helping to lead the church onward in Christ's name.
