"This is the day that the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it." This is a quotation from the Bible, Psalm 118 verse 24.
To help me be "glad in my day", I aspire to spend some time each day in meditation and devotion. Many days in my life I have missed doing this and sometimes have gone months without pursuing a deliberate daily "sitting down" to reflect and learn. However, during those times when I have had regular quiet times for myself, I have felt renewed.

Thankfully, there are excellent resources to help me with this discipline. One resource that appears on this blog on a daily basis is called Rejoice, and it is one that I use. Just click on Daily Devotional.

Another guide I recommend is called Take Our Moments and Our Days An Anabaptist Prayer Book. To order or request information on this book please call 1-800-245-7894, or visit

Task Force Survey

Greetings to you from the Mennonite Women Canada Task Force!

We are seven women from across Canada who have been given the task to make recommendations for future women's ministries in Mennonite Church Canada congregations. We have developed a survey which we would like Mennonite women of all ages and backgrounds to complete. The survey takes only about 5 minutes and we really need your participation to ensure that we get a good response. Just click on the survey link below. All responses will be kept strictly confidential. Please fill out the survey before October 25, 2009.
