We Make It Happen: A Living Timeline

October 03, 2013

Honoring our United Methodist Women members
NEW YORK, NEW YORK –The United Methodist Women national office launched a mixed-media engagement project—We Make It Happen: A Living Timeline—on Tuesday, October 1. The ongoing submissions will be posted on Facebook and Pinterest. Through various means of written and artistic expression, this project asks women to tell the stories of United Methodist Women members who have inspired them: their mothers, grandmothers, aunts, godmothers, daughters, granddaughters, sisters, nieces, goddaughters and friends. This “Living Timeline” will be unveiled at the United Methodist Women 2014 Assembly, held in April 2014, in Louisville, Ky.
In the spirit of sisterhood we wanted to find out how members bring about change in their communities and around the world. So we started asking the questions: How does the United Methodist Women member in your life inspire you? How is she an inspiration to others? What does she do to show unwavering support of women, children and youth? We want to know because we want to share with the world how our members rely on their faith, hope and love in action to Make It Happen for those deemed “the least,” Christ’s kin.
We Make It Happen: A Living Timeline  - The beautiful pieces of art, video, music and written expression we’ve received thus far can be viewed on United Methodist Women’s Pinterest page.
