Rev. Elder Freda Smith
PLEASE JOIN ME IN PRAYER …
Quite sadly, we learned today that Rev. Elder Freda Smith had a stroke last week, has since developed pneumonia, and is now in hospice care. At this moment, we are asking you to pray for Freda and for her long-time spouse, Kathleen, as they go through this transition. Freda is one of the pioneers of MCC’s early leadership as the first woman ordained and first female Elder in our fellowship.
Freda has greatly inspired me and so many with the courage to demand change creatively, gracefully, and boldly. Our Founding Moderator, Rev. Elder Troy Perry has much to say about Freda; but for now, urges us to come together in prayer. Troy says with confidence, “I know God can touch her body.”
Whatever your prayer practices are, please lift up Freda, Kathleen, and all of those who have been inspired and shaped by Freda’s ministry these many years. We want to surround her at this time of transition, as she has surrounded so many of us.
Rev. Elder Cecilia Eggleston
