Becky Ankeny to share this Sunday

This coming Sunday, SFC is proud to have our newest Northwest Yearly Meeting (NWYM) of Friends Superintendent, Becky Ankeny worshiping and sharing a word from the Lord.

Becky, is a member of Newberg Friends, has served many years at George Fox University and NWYM in a number of leadership capacities.

Becky is widely known and respected throughout the yearly meeting and has a broad knowledge of YM churches, individuals and history. She has expressed a vision for the yearly meeting that includes the building of a shared identity. She has also expressed an approach to community that could be described as a fundamental attitude of generosity.

Coming off of Peace Month and a passionate sermon series at SFC, here are some of Becky’s own words that promote these same ideals:

Listen carefully to each other.  The most important thing is to honor all. Value the contributions of all perspectives. The superintendent must build trust.  Shared work builds community.  Listen to what the Spirit is saying to the church.

SFC looks forward to Becky’s message and having her join our community for worship on Sunday, February 12, 2012.
