“You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colours. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this. I’m putting you on a light stand, now shine. Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.”
– Matthew 5:14-16 (The Message – paraphrased)
Defined by genuine empathy, the influence of this host of world-changers is being felt in local and global contexts – from endeavours that bring care to the fragile in local communities, through to the global issues of human trafficking and poverty.
At the core of sisterhood is a message of value, and a genuine desire to ‘unite in friendship and cause’ in order to bring hope where hope has been lost.
The spirit of sisterhood is seen and felt in the fervent prayer of thousands of women who faithfully uphold nations where injustice and darkness rage out of control. It is seen and felt in young women being inspired by the wisdom and grace of their mothers and the women ahead of them in this journey of life. It is seen and felt in the relentless networking of everyday girls in their local neighbourhoods and in places of influence as they raise awareness and find solutions for the suffering, forgotten and abused of this world.
There are many pages and chapters within the story of God’s daughters on the earth, and as the ‘i am sisterhood’ declaration states, we find ourselves in our own ‘here and now’ with more pages yet to be written and experienced.
