We celebrate the legacy of the rich memories, ministry and mission of the Quadrennial Assembly experience.
After an additional time of prayerful discernment the Executive Committee of International Disciples Women’s Ministries has determined, with sadness, that the Quadrennial Assembly of 2014 was our last.
We grieve this loss.
We are Disciples Women; let us reach out to each other in this time.
God has shown us what is good and has required of us to do justice, to love kindness and to walk humbly with our God. (Micah 6:8) While we grieve, we move forward in discernment as Disciples Women continues to be a conduit for diverse connections.
In the words of one of those wise women in our history, Claudia Grant:
“The legacy left by our foremothers is not the structure we celebrate. It is the commitment to the mission that always calls for the transformation and a willingness to risk doing what needs to be done in our times to do the mission.”
Together we will continue to answer God’s call and celebrate our joint ministry to empower each woman to find her voice and live out her call.
Peace and Blessings,
Executive Committee 2014-2018
My two daughters and I could not make this last Quadrennial and had made plans to attend the next one. Guess that won’t happen. Sorry.
