National President Anne-Marie Gorman
I have sat in the wheelhouse of this giant ship for a third year and marvel at the resilience of so large a boat full of hardworking women whose efforts have kept the ship afloat through fairly rough seas, while managing to navigate the waters with a high degree of poise and care, all the while retaining dignity. It was not easy. “For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, so that by steadfastness and by the encouragement of the scriptures we might have hope” (Romans 15:4)
It is quite common to conclude a president’s term by giving a travelogue of the places she’s been and the people she’s encountered with a sprinkling of the most pressing issues of the year. I believe God’s plan was much more pertinent to the theme of Care for Our Common Home than mine. The pandemic has kept us home, given us many opportunities to reflect on our lives, our spiritual underpinnings, and showed us that this is still most definitely God’s world.
