Last evening an event was held at Christ United Methodist Church in Plano, TX, sponsored by the Women's Ministry. It was entitled Facets of a Beautiful Woman: Body Mind Spirit. Donations were accepted at this event for the Interfaith Housing Coalition in Dallas. The mission of Interfaith is to be the hands of Christ helping families transition to self suffciency.

I attended this event and was surprised by all the cars in the parking lot as I arrived. I wondered if Monday night was choir practice night. Surely all these cars and the large groups of women entering were not just here for this women's event. It was to have been held in a Sunday school class room.
It was wonderful that I was wrong, the attendance surprised most everyone, over 300 women had registered, not counting the ones who attended who had not registered. The event had to be moved to the main sanctuary!
It was so nice to see some old friends I had not seen in a while. There was all kinds of different foods and drinks. Everyone was generous in their donations for the Interfaith Housing Coalition! What a great mission, to help some of the homeless to become self sufficient. The donations will help furnish small apartments and when the residents move out, they get to take it all with them.
Some of the questions presented last evening concerning the mind of a beautiful woman:
1) At what time in your daily routine do you feel the most open to the Holy Spirit?
2) At what time in your daily routine do you feel the least open to the Holy Spirit?
3) What spiritual practices are most meaningful in your relationship with God?
