PRESBYTERIAN WOMEN PURPOSE (Unison Reading)

Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves:
To nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study,
To support the mission of the church worldwide
To work for justice and peace,
And to build an inclusive, caring, community of women
That strengthens the Presbyterian Church (USA)
And witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.

Explanation of Presbyterian Women Logo

Forgiven and freed by grace through faith, the central figure stands in praise.

Rooted in faith the trio of women emerge. The outline of the central figures forms a cross. We are Presbyterian women engrafted in Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. It is no longer we who live, but Christ who lives in us.

The right figure holds a book to guide her studying, praying and reading.

The left figure reaches out to care for others, as she shares, nurtures, and heals. The circle represents the church worldwide where women offer their gifts and talents in the midst of the global community.

The uplifted arms of the central figure reach out to embrace a just peace. The relationship between the three figures depicts lives of wholeness rather than turmoil.

The three women have no distinct features. They represent all women. The shapes surrounding them express energy, strength and openness.

Our name, Presbyterian Women, ties us to our denomination. The Bible resembles the Bible depicted in the Presbyterian Church (USA) seal.

Guided by the purpose, Presbyterian Women witnesses to the reality of God’s present realm.

LEAST COIN PRAYERS

The coin I hold is very small
- as money goes-
Not much at all,
But, take it Lord
And work Your good
Toward peace on earth
And family hood.
As one rain drop
Can start a sea
A wave of love
Can start with me.


The International Committee, FLC, suggests this prayer c/o The Church of Christ in Thailand 109 CCT Building 13th Floor Surawong road Khet Bangrak, Bangkok 10500, Thailand

Our Loving Creator we present ourselves in your divine presence to thank you for all the bountiful gifts of life. We are especially grateful for the Fellowship of the Least Coin which binds us together in love and forgiveness around the globe.

Free us from all doubts and prejudices, we pray. Inspire us to live in solidarity with humankind that we may know the joy of giving and receiving.

Dear God, accept this least coin as a token of love. Make us mindful of the miracles of these coins. Let us honor your creation with love as shown through the life, death and resurrection of your son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
