Following a suggestion made to the Committee on Women’s Work of the Reformed Episcopal Church, the Committee planned the devotional book for 1986-87 around the general theme of “Fear Not,” and asked ten wives of Reformed Episcopal ministers each to write a month’s study. We saw this as an opportunity for each to open up her heart and mind to us as each woman shared personal experiences, lessons learned and promises claimed.
Among our writers, in addition to being the wife of a minister, are mothers, grandmothers, a widow, teachers, business women, etc. Theirs have been years of rich spiritual experience. Mrs. Harry Kidd of Grace Church, Havre de Grace, Maryland, prepared the art work for the [original 1986-1987] cover.
Even as Mrs. Howard Bach tells us in her article “Woman, Thy Name is Help-Meet,” these women are helpmeets to their husbands, responding to the calls to love and service and especially to “Fear Not!” Beyond this these women and each of us are to be Christ’s help-meets for as Mrs. Bach writes “For this you were created and redeemed.”
