About 135 women joined their hearts in praise and meditation around the theme of Colossians 3:16: “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your heart to the Lord.”
The occasion for this opportunity of fellowship was the sixth biennial luncheon held on Wednesday, June 19 during the week of the CLC Convention.
Ruth Sydow spoke on “Making Music in your Heart to the Lord,” a personal narrative of how music played an important role in the lives of her and her family.
Mary Thom gave an informative talk on “Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs,” relating the theme directly to our lives.
The women also enjoyed entertainment by Lynette Roehl, and flute and violin duets by Laurie Lau and Lisa Sprengeler, with some piano accompaniment by Sue Reim. There was a discussion of common problems for different age groups of Christian women, led by Lois Mackensen, Ruth Tri, Irene Eichstadt, and Marion Fitschen. Marion Dommer led a choral number.
Coordinators for the luncheon were Sue Lau and Lois Porath, and for the program Dorothy Lau. To make the day an enjoyable one, many others helped with displays, tags, registration, decorations, serving, setting up and cleaning up.
In order to continue this tradition we need a volunteer for general chairman for 1998. If interested, please notify Mrs. John Lau by May 1, 1997.
