Women walking in faith - January 2013 - "In the Bleak Mid-winter"

Just so you know - this is a re-posting.  While working on the blog I inadvertently reverted it back to a draft.  Now, when I publish it I don't know if it will revert back to the original date of Feb 13 but I hope so.  If not, I'm not going to worry about it.  The blog about the next article will be ready very soon!  

In the January 22 issue of the Canadian Mennonite on page 13 is an article which Ev Buhr, President of Mennonite Women Alberta, put together.  Thanks, Ev for your commitment to women's ministry and for the time and energy over the past 8 years you have served on the executive of Mennonite Women Canada.  

For those of you who are not familiar with the Canadian Mennonite magazine, click here.

For the past several years, every second month, Mennonite Women Canada has had a page in the Canadian Mennonite under the heading "Women Walking Together in Faith". Each person on our executive takes her turn to fill this page.  We appreciate the advice and guidance of Leona Dueck Penner of Winnipeg who helps us with choosing topics and editing.
