March is Women's History Month, a time to celebrate and honor the achievements of women throughout history. This year's theme, “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories," honors women in every community who have devoted their lives and talents to producing art and news, pursuing truth, and reflecting society decade after decade.
To launch Women's History Month, PC(USA)'s Racial Equity & Women’s Intercultural Ministries and Presbyterian Women hosted a worship service celebrating women on March 1. This worship reflected on Mary, her prayerful song, and the sisterhood between Mary and Elizabeth. Worship leader Rev. Marcia Mount Shoop, Ph.D., is head of staff at Grace Covenant Church in Asheville, North Carolina. Her sermon, based on Luke 1:45-56, was titled "Scattering, Shattering, and Mattering." The worship is available to view on Facebook.
