On March 13 the local chapter of Church Women United (CWU) will hold its first celebration of 2020 at the Sharon Methodist Church, 5181 SR 380, Wilmington.
The theme of the year is based on the scripture from Habakkuk 2:2; “The Lord answered me and said: ‘Write the vision and make it plain on tablets that he may run who reads it’.”
CWU has a vision for the future and, in order to share that vision, we must write it and live it so that future generations can draw from it. Our overall mission is to witness to our communities that we can worship and work as one Body of Christ.
The Human Rights Celebration for 2020 theme is Unite to Serve. Scriptures for the day are Psalm 94:14 “Certainly the Lord does not forsake his people; he does not abandon the nation that belongs to him”; and Psalm 82: 3-4 “Defend the poor and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and needy; deliver the poor and needy; free them from the hand of the wicked.”
The ultimate idea of a Human Rights Celebration is to educate and embrace the principles of human equality and dignity and the commitment of respect and protect the rights of all people.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1948 as a result of World War II, as a guarantee the rights of every individual everywhere and vowed to never again allow the atrocities of that war to happen again. They apply regardless of where you are from, what you believe, or how you choose to live your life.
