Women’s Breakfast - Baking together via Zoom

On Sunday, March 21, we were invited by Petra Lolk and her team to experience a women's breakfast of a special kind.
Baking cakes together was the order of the day. We received the shopping list in advance by mail and so we were all set on Sunday.
We could choose from a vegan cake with Rabea or a normal cake with Frieda.
We started with a devotion and then got down to baking. Every step was exactly explained, once for the vegan and once for the normal cake.
We had a lot of fun. While the cake was in the oven, Mareen Schmidt shared with us her thoughts and the adventure of being God's image. What does it mean to be his image?
After Eve and Adam had to leave the garden, they struggled to manage their lives on earth.
But God remains faithful and is always by our side. He is always prepared to seek us.
As in Hosea 2:14 I will lead her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to her.
Or Verse 16: “In that day,” declares the Lord, “you will call me ‘my husband’; you will no longer call me ‘my master.’ 
Or in Hosea 2:20 "I will make a covenant with the wild beasts, the birds and the creeping things, so that they will not harm her. I will end wars and break all bows and swords. I will do all this so that she may live in peace and safety."
The example of Deborah, the Old Testament judge, also brought before us what a strong leader is.
