1 Peter 4:8-10:
8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. 9 Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
As mentors, many of us share our own experiences with the Sisters we avoid dictating “advice”- We mentor through sharing experiences during Family Time conversations and with our King’s Messages - our Mentoring reaches a new level when we engage in shared experiences - experiences we SHARE TOGETHER - from the games at our Fidelis Nights, to retreats, lock ins and Adventure days we get a taste for what the Fidelis Sisterhood can do to transform our culture and our world. Not only are we “sharing our experiences” with the Sisters but we are also sharing in some of the same experiences.
Through this ultimate Fidelis shared experience - INSPIRE - we come to know, love and serve God and our fellow Sisters with a renewed sense of TRUE CHARITY - Authentic Virtue. We LIVE virtue during this 5 day retreat! We disconnect from WORLD and CONNECT with HIM - Our Lord Jesus! This transformative experience will happen on the mountaintop...OR it will happen in the days, weeks and months ahead as His love and Holy Spirit goes to work on each of us. Surely, the mentoring will have many layers/dimensions - Ladies will mentor Sisters, Sisters will mentor Ladies, Sisters will mentor Sisters and Ladies will mentor Ladies. Then we will all go back to our chapters and have a unique connection with the Sisters & Ladies in our chapters and the WHOLE of the Fidelis Sisterhood.
Be Great, make others great - we can only do this by leading others to Jesus and having Jesus at the forefront of our lives, our journey. Enter into INSPIRE and experience the heart of Jesus who is at the heart of the Fidelis Sisterhood.
PREPARE YOUR CHAPTER WELL FOR INSPIRE - A Parent Meeting can help you achieve this. Please see the attached agenda for a Parent Meeting. Also, reach out to your fellow Fidelis Sisters/Ladies for suggestions. You're always welcome to reach out to Betsy! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
