Quiet Day at Christ Church Anglican- Midland, Texas
The St. Helen’s Chapter sponsored a Quiet Day for the women of Christ Church on Saturday, March 30 led by Janness Gilles. The theme of the Quiet Day was, “Today, If You Hear His Voice” The day began with Morning Prayer led by the Chaplain, the Rev. Donald Brown. Janness then instructed us on how to meditate on the scripture (Hebrews 4:7, 10-12) and journal what God was saying to us through the Holy Spirit. She instructed each of us to make note of words or phrases that, “stop your heart” and begin there. God spoke to each of us in sometimes surprising ways. After a light lunch, we continued with Midday Prayer and then embarked on a “Painting with paper” art project to express God’s message to us. Even those of us who are not artistic were surprised what can be created with torn paper and glue when God is in charge. The day was truly a day of blessing.
Daughters of Hope Chapter, The Woodlands, Tx
The Daughter’s of Hope Chapter created sets of resurrection eggs for the families at HopePointe Anglican Church. These were handed out to families with children on Palm Sunday. Each egg contained a symbol, Scripture and a description of what happened during that part of Holy Week. This created an opportunity for families to walk through Holy Week together and experience the events as a family.

The Daughters of Grace Anglican Community are reading the “The Bait of Satan” by John Bevere. They read a couple of chapters and discuss them during their monthly meeting. It has been a challenging read as they are faced with looking at how they have been offended and understanding how being offended can be sinful. Pictured are Susan Akerman and Lori Shafer.
