Is God Calling You to be a Daughter of the King? Come and See.

The Daughters of the King is an international religious order for women, both lay and ordained, who are members of Episcopal, Anglican, Roman Catholic, or Lutheran faiths.  We focus on prayer, service, and evangelism.  The process of becoming a member of this Order requires a period of discernment and training on topics like what it means to be a Christian, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and preparing a personal Rule of Life.

The Church of the Good Samaritan is blessed to have a chapter of this Order; we meet on the first and third Saturdays of the month, from 9:30-11:00.  We often have a short program designed to help our spiritual growth, but the main portion of our meeting is spent in prayer for the needs of our parish and beyond.  We have hosted parish Quiet Days to provide time for personal reflection and are actively involved in intercessory prayer.

I have been blessed to be a member of this Order since 1993.  You may have heard me use the motto of the Order in a sermon occasionally.  The motto helps me keep my eyes focused on Jesus and maintain a sense of balance in this busy world:  “I am but one, but I am one.  I cannot do everything, but I can do something.  What I can do, I ought to do.  What I ought to do, by the grace of God, I will do. Lord, what will you have me do?”

On March 18, the Good Samaritan Chapter will host a brunch and informational meeting for any women who may be interested in becoming a member.  We’ll meet in room 223 beginning at 9:30 a.m.  We’ll show a video about the Order and members will share about what being a Daughter means in their lives.  Please join us!  If you have any questions, you may contact me at beverly.berry@good-samaritan.org or 610 644-4040 x. 213, or our current president, Virginia Webb at exjerseyms@aol.com.
