1 1 Wesley United Methodist Women 144 Years of Women in Service to Women PURPOSE The organized unit of United Methodist Women shall be a community of women whose Purpose is to know God, And to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church. March 2014 Dear Sisters, This March is even more special with Lent starting on Ash Wednesday, March 5th. Lent is a time of preparation for the death of Christ on Good Friday and His Resurrection on Easter Sunday. It is a period of 40 days of repentance, with prayer and abstinence. What do you want to give up for lent? Easter Sunday is April 20 th and is considered the most important Christian holiday. It celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ three days after his death. I hope this is a time for you to renew your commitment to teaching of Christ and how he gave up his life that we may have eternal life. Remember to give your circle leaders your envelopes from our Prayer and Self-Denial. Also, remember to wear green on March 17 th for St. Patrick s Day. In God s love, Sue

2 2 JOYS: Thankful for the opportunities to learn, to help others, and to study the Word. Take time to be refreshed and renew through the experience of the Words of Christ.

3 3 Book Club COME JOIN US! The next Book Club meeting will be Sunday, March 30th, after the 11o clock Worship Service The book is An Invisible Thread, by Laura Schroff and Alex Tresniowski. It is based on a true story of an 11 year Old Panhandler, a busy sales Executive and an unlikely meeting with destiny. Schroff was a successful ad sales representative in Manhattan. Maurice was a homeless 11 year old panhandler. He asked for change; she kept walking. Then something stopped her, and she went back. She continued to go back again and again, forming a friendship that has spanned almost three decades and brought life to an overscheduled professional and hope to a desperate boy. You can check out the book from the public library if the church library does not have it on its shelf. Come join us for this meeting. Pat SOCIAL ACTION COORDINATOR PAT GOBEN This is a P.S. to your circle meeting in February on Human Trafficking. In the Fairfax County Times newspaper on January 16, 2014, there was an article entitled "New weapons to end trafficking." The Fairfax County Police Department has received a million dollar grant from the Justice Department to set up a new human trafficking unit. Sex traffickers, including local gangs, target unsuspecting and typically insecure teenage girls as young as 13 or 14 who are seeking attention and affection, law enforcement officials say. The county launched a web site to inform the public about this and ways to protect children. The Web site is to educate the public on what to look for and also to inform social workers, school officials and teachers, pastors and community leaders about what to do when someone comes to them to report a possible victim. The U.S. attorney's office in Alexandria has successfully prosecuted 24 federal cases against 50 defendants since "There are a lot of myths and misperceptions about human trafficking out there," said Detective Bill Woolf of the Fairfax County Police Department's new human trafficking unit. "We hope with this Web site to educate, and let people know that this threat is very real, right here at home, and that we need the community's help in combating it." It's encouraging to know that Fairfax County has recognized this victimizing and will be aggressively prosecuting offenders.

4 4 PROGRAM RESOUCES: PAT SAMPSON: The book, I Speak For Myself American Women on Being Muslim, by Maria M. Ebrahimji and Zahra T. Suratwala is another one of those books that can be set aside and picked up again without losing the message of its contents. This book can be checked out from the Fairfax County Library. It comes under Recommended Reading on the UMW Reading List under the Nurturing for Community category for The short essays from 40 young, well-educated Muslim women in all walks of life relate their feelings as they experienced discrimination, insulting remarks, fears, abuse, etc., after the horrifying events of 9/11 in America. Some stories tell how Muslim girls in public schools always felt on the defensive to account for their differences from the mainstream majority students even though they themselves were born in America. They carried the stigma of a different culture (Muslim), race, language, and parents into their activities, particularly sports and other teenaged activities. Those girls who choose to wear the hijab sometimes grew frustrated by explaining that yes, they could compete and compete well while seemingly being hindered by wearing clothes that covered every part of their body, or, yes they did have a strong commitment to their religion- Islam. Other girls applied themselves to academics and succeeded, even excelled, to graduate with honors and matriculate to University degrees and beyond. It was amazing to read of the accomplishments of these women in the face of adversity and how they embraced their religious convictions throughout to give them the strength and purpose to direct their lives. Perhaps by reading these stories we, as Methodists, can gain a better understanding of differences in our multi-cultural society and pass those learned behaviors to our progeny. Enjoy your reading of these fine books.
