The History of WoW!WoW A few years ago a number of us “Church Ladies” got together to talk—as women do. Our conversation centered around the demanding roles of our lives as wives, mothers, daughters, sisters, employees, bosses, and so forth, that resulted in our frantic, chronic busyness. This question was posed repeatedly, “In the midst of our daily not so “controlled chaos”, where is there even a mille-second of time for ‘Spiritual’ growth or renewal?” In our attempt to answer that question, we felt a growing desire to serve the women of our parish, along with those from surrounding churches, who want and need to “taste and see the goodness of the Lord” – A better bite of the apple so to speak! This simple desire to serve gave birth to what is now known as W0W – Women of the Word. Our goal was and is to give you a “night out” with God to feed your Spirit! Some prayer and conversation, God’s Words and insights, some laughter and tears, some music, a lesson or two…. no commitment…just come as you are and receive the Gift. Well from then to now: Our “giving team” has grown from 6 to 14 ladies ranging from the ages of 30 to over 70 years young, and our attendance has been over 150 ladies for every event—again with a similar age range. Our audience is inter-denominational consisting of Christians, Catholics, Baptists and Jewish women. All are welcome, whether attending for the first time or repeat “friend-ers”. Each and every WoW has been a Godly adventure. After much discernment, we pick a very simple word or phrase as our topic. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, conversations, a current “hot topic”, Bible study, books and websites, we write skits and lessons, we choose songs, prayers, a video presentation or two, and somehow God makes it a great spirit-filled night. If you are a woman in the parish who is looking for something more, trying to fill a void, is curious, or just plain bored, join us! Join God! And come be a Woman of the Word!
