The Meaning of "Errand of Angels"
|When I think of my role as a woman,
particularly as a Christian, I think of the second line of the hymn "As Sisters in
Zion" which reads:
|The errand of angels is given to women,|
|And this is a gift that, as sisters, we claim:|
|To do what-so-ever is gentle and human,|
|To cheer and to bless in humanity's name
The first time I heard this song, it struck me with great force because it expressed the true role women play. We have a quiet role of service and charity, not of power, or great honor, but something better. We have nothing less than the errands of angels to accomplish.
In today's world, it can be difficult to not only realize our true role and see it as an important one, but to recognize that it is a real gift and blessing from God. We are in His service. In our world, most of our service is not only unpaid, but it is often unrecognized and certainly not given the great value and worth it deserves. No matter what value the world places on our service, we need to realize our great contribution to society.
Through this home page, I hope to give encouragement and ideas, but most of all support to the many women who are the real backbone of our society. Women who give countless hours of charitable service -- service mainly given as mothers and wives.
