I always find this time of year to be exciting for the work of the Global Women’s Project Steering Committee. As we move from winter into spring, we have the opportunity to share some of our inspiring educational resources with our supporters. Hearing about your experiences with these materials always energizes our committee as we come together for our March meeting (this year we’re coming for you, Modesto, CA!).

Ash Wednesday is just around the corner, but it’s not too late to order one of our free Lenten

Selections from the new Lenten Calendar.
Selections from the new Lenten Calendar.

Calendars! Filled with scripture, facts about our partner projects and the countries where they are based, beautiful pictures and artwork, and engaging activities, this calendar is sure to be a meaningful addition to your Lenten season. We’ve had several congregations decide to use the calendar this year and we can’t wait to hear their reflections on the experience. Prefer a “greener” method to participating in the calendar? Sign up to receive a page of the calendar each day by email throughout Lent. No more forgetting where you left the calendar, just check your inbox! If you are interested in either of these options, send an email to cobgwp@gmail.com with either your email address or mailing address.

Sunday March 8th is International Women’s Day, and we invite you, your women’s fellowship group, and your congregation to check out the Women’s Day Resources shared on our website. Click here to access several powerful pieces written by women around the country. There are litanies, prayers, reflections, hymn suggestions, and more – everything you need to put together a thought-provoking service that honors and empowers the women in our communities and around the world.
