On the weekends, I would like to share some of my favorite words on unity and love in the Body as our weekend meditations.  I’ve been calling them “liturgies” but a more accurate description would be “prayers”.  These are my prayers for this tribe, written by others for the Jesus Tribe.  It’s a way for me to remember and center myself on our essential ethic of unconditional love as I process my distinct convictions and passions throughout the week.  I know some of the theological beliefs I’m passionate about are hotly contended between believers, these weekend words will help keep me humble and a peacemaker.

Today’s post comes from one of my favorite bloggers, Idelette McVicker. Last month, I joined in their 25 Days of Prayer for Syria and was so challenged by the amazing women contributing to Idelette’s magazine turned global Sisterhood.  She is such good people y’all!  She’s passionate and wise.  This gorgeous Manifesto, called “Let us be women who Love”  is exactly the attitude I want as I work through the next few posts on this tribe’s Campfire Calls.  You can click the quote to go to the post and then I encourage you spend some time this evening reading Idelette’s blog, and   

You’ll come away a better woman for it.

Join me in praying…”Lord, Let Us Be”

Let us be women who Love by Idelette McVicker

Let us be women willing to lay down our sword words, our sharp looks, our ignorant silence and towering stance and fill the earth now with extravagant Love.

Let us be women who Love.

Let us be women who make room.

Let us be women who open our arms and invite others into an honest, spacious, glorious embrace.

Choosing to be a woman who Loves,
