Presbyterian Women in December

It is that wonderful time of year again, Advent-Christmas! I was looking over the 2014 Presbyterian Giving Catalog and thought what a wonderful way to celebrate the birth of Christ by giving a gift to someone that can make a difference in his or her life. Take a look at all the unique ideas that can help people around the world who are facing daily struggles.

The women in PW are busy making plans and preparations for the annual Christmas High Tea. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, December 13th, and promises to be bigger and better than ever. If you would like to volunteer to help with this event, contact Gail Bickel at 623-815-7290.

December is a busy month for everyone so you might want to make note of the following activities for January 2015!
  • Church Women United Human Rights Celebration
    Friday, January 30th in Swain Hall, from 9:30 am to 11:30 am
  • PW Gathering Chili Luncheon honoring men of the congregation
    January 28th at 11:30 am in Swain Hall

Son of the Underground, The Life of Isaac Liu, son of Brother Yun the Heavenly Man by Isaac Liu and Albrecht Kaul

Because his father was an enemy of the state, Isaac’s mother was about to be forced into having an abortion, though seven months pregnant. After desperate prayer, the night before she was due to go into a hospital for the operation, she miraculously gave birth.

My Name is Malala, The Girl Who stood up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai with Christine Lame

The book describes the life of the young Pakistani student who advocated for women’s rights and education in the Taliban-controlled Swat Valley, survived an assassination attempt, and became the youngest nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Blessings to all,
