WHAT IS A UNITED METHODIST WOMAN?
God borrows from many creatures to make a United Methodist Woman. He takes the voice of a meadowlark, the stubberness of a mule, the curiosity of a cat, the spryness of a grasshopper ad the strength of a pack horse.
United Methodist Women are found everywhere - in the church choir and the church kitchen and in the business manager's office.
A United Methodst Woman is comfort with a casserole in her hand, service sweeping up wedding cake crumbs, compassion with a pledge card in her pocket, friendship with a cheeful smile on her face and a hunger for knowledge armed with a Bible and a study book.
District officers love them, administrative boards include them, church secretaries slave for them, husbands dispair of them and heaven protects them.
A United Methodist Woman has the energy of a pocket-size atomic bomb, the imagination of a Frank Lloyd Wright, the shyness of a violet, the audacity of a steel trap and the enthusiasm of a fire cracker.
A United Methodist Woman is a dreamer and a worker, dreaming great dreams for her children, her church, and her country and working to make these dreams come true. She's a link with the past, a powerful force in the present, and an investiment in the future.
With pride, I acknowledge my membership in these ranks.
