International Women’s Day

International Women's Day

Wednesday March 8 is International Women’s Day – a great day to remember and thank the women in our lives who inspire us with their kindness, generosity, faith, wisdom, and strength.  Thank you to Pilgrim’s women of faith who encourage so many with grace and inspire individuals (myself included) to be a better person!  Thank you to all of Pilgrim’s members and friends who work to promote a healthier world by affirming and encourage women to use their gifts in many ways including leadership.

It is also an important time to speak up and pray for the safety, equality, rights, and education of women in our country and around the world.  It is only when we all are empowered to live to our potential and glorify God that the world will truly be a healthy place for everyone!
