Women’s Workshop at CPC


“Living Life Fully as Women in a Fast Moving World”

Jesus said, “You are the light of the world. No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it under a bushel basket, but on a lamp stand, and it gives light to all in the house.” And Nelson Mandela wrote that we are meant to shine, that when we let our lights shine, we give other people permission to do the same. Sometimes as women in a highly competitive, fast moving world, we feel full of stress and overwhelmed with what feels like an 'out of control' life. At such times, the promise of letting our lights shine may seem a long way off. But each of us is a miracle of uniqueness, a truly beautiful creation, and amazingly adaptable. We have been given gifts and talents – many of which we may not even be aware. At times, even that idea can seem a bit frightening. We wonder if we are worthy of such precious gifts. We are afraid people might not like us or feel threatened by us if they see or experience our gifts.

But since Jesus instructed us to use our talents and gifts, to let our lights shine – not to hide them under bushel baskets, then we need to open ourselves to our God-given gifts and talents. If we use them, we might help others to accept their gifts. Perhaps we may be able to be of greater service to our families, our communities, and to the world. In this exciting workshop, we will explore Jesus' words and their meaning to us. We will consider how we can open ourselves to our God-given gifts and talents and how we can best use them to make the world a better place for ourselves and for others.
