White as snow

What do you think of when you see the word snow? Does it suggest one of the many compound words beginning with the word snow? Snowfall, snowplow, snowball, snowpants, snowblower, snowsuit, to name a few. All those little flakes falling out of the sky, gathering together to make a winter wonderland, to blanket the outdoor world in white. Many Christians relate to the beauty of the newly fallen snow as cleansing, of purity, it reminds us of how we feel when we know our sins are forgiven.

What would we think of just one flake? A go-it-alone renegade flake. Once it lands on the ground, it is not easy to find. This makes me think of the LWML, alone as individuals, we may not make an impact, but together as a group, the wonderful sisterhood provides support for missions, Bible study, times of encouragement, friendship and singing praises to our Lord and Savior as we continue to support the telling of the Gospel story through our Mite offerings.

At the LWML 40th Biennial convention in Milwaukee this summer we will gather with our brothers and sisters in Christ from across our nation to make an impact. Join us in Milwaukee as we “Celebrate the Lord of the Nations.” Sign up for an opportunity to be a part of the excitement, it takes many hands working together to make a convention happen. You can apply online at: and scroll down for the “Call for Workers” link.

As Lutheran Women in Mission we joyfully proclaim Christ, support missions, and equip women to honor God by serving others.
