Bus here meaning the life of this vision. It has to be more than feelings or even need and desire. It has to be more. It has to be deeper. It has to be what we really believe–inside–in the fiber of our being. It has to be what will both set the trajectory and hold us to a steady course. It has to be what will make the journey worthwhile, valuable, significant and impactful.
It has to be worth committing to. It has to be the heart of the matter.
At the heart of the matter is God. He has to be the one who has called us to this. God’s heart is the heart of this matter. His heart that never wavers, knows the way through, and creates a bulwark and plumb line.
God is calling.
He has something powerful and particular on His heart for WOMEN.
We are stronger together.
This is the heart of the matter. This is the central belief driving the Women of Our Time bus.
