A Word from the President
With deepest regrets, the 28th LWML Chesapeake District is cancelled for a physical location. The safety and health of our Lutheran Women in Mission is our prime concern.
The August edition of the Chesapeake Breeze is full of details about the restructuring of the happenings that were going to be at convention, only in a virtual format on September 26, 2020. We are blessed to have Lynn Corker from Women of the Pearl to be our Mission speaker. LWML Vice President of Christian Life, Susan Brunkow, will share news from the national organization and plans for the 2021 convention in Lexington, KY.
Remember that each group may designate two delegates as part of their Zone delegation to the convention to cast votes for officers and for mission grants for the 2020-2022 biennium. Voting will still take place electronically. There will also be a delegate orientation on September 12 via Zoom. Zone Chairs should already have been in contact with each group for the names of the delegates. This helps us to prepare for the orientation as to who will be eligible to vote and send information out ahead of time. If you haven’t heard from your Zone Chair, please contact Paulette Gaines, Zone Liasion, email@example.com or myself (firstname.lastname@example.org) by August 22.
Please keep all of the delegates and our discernment process in your prayers over the next month. The virtual convention is a wonderful opportunity to share the excitement of LWML with other women who have not had the opportunity to attend in the past! I also encourage you to seek out the ethnic congregations in your areas and invite these women to join us in virtual convention.
Your LWML sister,
District President, LWML Chesapeake District
