“Over the years, this ministry has taken different forms. Sometimes just a listening ear, inviting someone over for coffee and praying with them. Sometimes speaking at various women’s events – from luncheons to retreats.

I’ve been fortunate to also be involved in a women’s prison ministry. Out of the comfort zone into the unknown. With God, however, the future is all known. So I found there is nothing to fear. I remember my very first evening at the prison I was struck by two things: many of the women looked like my daughters or their friends – so young… And talking to the women was like talking to a woman in the grocery line. You know the kind of conversations you can have with a total stranger? (The kind that still mystifies my husband to this day!  ‘You talked about menopause… with someone you never met???’)

Priscilla MorrisonIn recent years I’ve been spending a lot more time with the elderly.  And I find the concerns of the older women I meet are still very basic – lack of security, fear of the future, loneliness, health issues, family problems.”
