Women's History Month

Women's History Month celebrates the contributions of women throughout history, including the women's suffrage movement. Women have made significant contributions to every field of study, but have historically been under-recognized and under-appreciated. To honor Women's History Month, The Christian Chain highlights the work of four women within the Church: Kateri Tekakwitha, Sojourner Truth, Corrie ten Boom, and Mother Teresa. Women's History Month is also about recognizing the ongoing fight for gender equality, which is also needed within the Church. As allies, we can support and advocate for policies that promote gender equality.

Season of Lent - Ash Wednesday

Whether you observe Ash Wednesday or not, it is important to remember that God always forgives us, no matter if we observe one practice or not. God always forgives us, no matter how good we are nor how sinful we have been. God's love for us goes beyond what we can do and goes directly to what He has done for us. May this Season of Lent be a time that we reflect on that truth.

Season of Lent

The season of Lent is not normally observed by the Christian Church as a whole; but, its meaning and observation can be a great way for us to show solidarity as the Body of Christ. Traditionally, a believer would choose something they enjoy or that they do/eat often and abstain during the season of Lent. When this is done it causes the mind to have a constant reminder to think or reflect on a topic; IE to remember the sacrifice Jesus made for our sins. What will you choose to give up during this season as you prepare your heart and mind for the coming Easter season?
