Bountiful God
Bountiful God
by Sara Regier

Bountiful God
You are the friend we can trust.
Remove from us the shame and insecurity
That makes us fearful and diminishes us
 
Mindful of your mercy and faithfulness
To past generation,
Free us from the illusion of scarcity
To generous hospitality
 
Put an end to the violence
that festers in our secret thoughts
Empower us to actions of justice
Release us to envision possibilities
 
Look with compassion
on the loneliness we try to hide
That separates us from each other
Expectantly we wait,
God, our Redeemer.
 
Based on Psalm 25

     



Sara Regier served as Coordinator for Women in Mission (General Conference)1986-1990. She worships (and is involved in activities) at Faith Mennonite Church, Newton KS.

Order your Bible Study Guide Today!

This 12-session Bible study helps women recognize the Spirit's gentle nudging-or firm push-so that they can clarify and participate in God's mission for their lives. Author Anna Liechty Sawatzky draws deeply from stories in the Gospels to affirm and challenge women to live out their God-given calling and to empower them to share the good news with others.
Excellent for personal study, women's groups, and retreat settings, this dynamic study published in partnership with Mennonite Women Canada and MennoMedia nurtures the faith of women in new and active ways and encourages women in their Christian walk.


Circles of Sisterhood

Learn about the history of Mennonite women and their organizations in Anita Hooley Yoder's new book, Circles of Sisterhood. The saga of Mennonite women's organizations is a story of struggle and triumph, productivity and misgivings, questions and celebrations. During the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, women's groups have offered Mennonite women a means of serving others by sewing clothing, laboring over quilts, rolling bandages, and packing school kits. Women's groups have also provided Mennonite women the opportunity to test their skills as leaders and give voice to callings they felt in a church that has not always valued their gifts for ministry. 

The Lady's Prayer by Charity Kheshgi

The Lady's prayer is a new take on the prayer format that Jesus offers in Matthew 6:9-13 with the Divine feminine as the listener and guide. It shifts the focus from the material to the immaterial kingdom and emphasizes our agency in the creation of a better life and a better world.
