This evening, DUMC’s United Methodist Women hosted a Mother-Daughter Potluck Dinner. It was great! There are a lot of great cooks in our midsts. Chicken, ham, turkey and stuffing, salads, and casseroles filled the tables. Tea, lemonade, water, and coffee was on hand. I was stuffed during the meal and again now just thinking about it.
The program that followed was a tribute to all women. Some Psalms were read, a devotional about women followed, and a retelling of the interactions of Jesus and his mother continued the theme. Then Rev Erin Daniels and her family filled the sanctuary with song. Songs of praise were beautifully harmonized by three generations of the Gibson women, even included the little ones in the presentation. Despite the technically issues that were had, the ladies made a lovely presentation.
It was a wonderful thing to see my church family come together to celebrate the female strength that is helpful to so many in so many ways. Thanks to the UM Men for cleaning up after the dinner. That was a nice touch to a wonderful evening.
