This is a declaration that frames the heart of this gathering. It seeks to put language around a growing movement of women arising on the earth, who are responding to a simple invitation to BE THE CHANGE and make a positive difference in their local and/or global communities.
“I AM SISTERHOOD is a declaration.
A declaration that is bold and strong, quiet and confident. A declaration about value and identity, purpose and mission. It is a declaration intentional in reach and embrace. It transcends culture and creed, age and status, prejudice and preference.
It’s a declaration that positions itself amid awareness and responsibility, concern and care, injustice and solution. A declaration ultimately concerned with the welfare of the world and her inhabitants. It has courageously woven its way through time and history and continues to weave itself across our lives and future.
It is our collective here and now – and belongs to any feminine soul, who somehow believes that she was born for more than what is temporal and fleeting.
It’s for women of all ages and background, personality and style, colour and vibrancy. It’s for the bold and bodacious, the demure and unassuming.
It’s the sisterhood that perhaps heaven imagined when a very intentional Creator created His girls. It’s strong and beautiful, feminine and gracious, authoritative and gentle and above all else, welcomes the broken and discarded.
Welcomes the broken and discarded.
Whichever way you see or understand it, it is a growing movement of women across the earth.
Our hope in you reading and absorbing the truth within these words, is that your heart will be enlarged and blessed.
Let’s take what is in our hand and genuinely use it for good. Together we can make this world a better place.
