Last Sunday, I was at Lake Junaluska, NC for UMW Leadership Development Days.  Much of my blog this week has been about my time there. 

This was the worship center that greeted us when we went to the auditorium for worship on Sunday morning.

Our worship emphasis for the time there was on the Ruth and Naomi story.  We were challenged to be alert to the Ruths and Naomis of our own time.

In the UMW Prayer Calendar for today, the Mission Focus is Camp Aldersgate Inc., Little Rock, Arkansas. 

Today is observed as Human Relations Day in the United Methodist Church.

Think about this quote today - "A hug is a great gift - one size fits all, and it's easy to exchange."
