Sis. Jeannette Carter, Most Worthy Grand Superior
Give praises and thanks to God, for this opportunity to speak to you again about unity among our Households and Lodges, throughout this Grand Old Order.
ALL OF OUR STRENGTH IS IN OUR UNION AND ALL DANGER IS OUR DISCORD
We must be concerned for the longevity of our organization and what we as members must do to preserve our heritage and our order.
We have given much of ourselves and worked hard to allow our organization to slowly dissipate or disappear. We must communicate with each other to stay unified for common goals.
“WORKING TOGETHER WORKS”
In order to stay a strong organization, we must continue to unite so we can have a positive effect on as many people as possible so our children, grandchildren and communities can have a better life.
WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
We can unite to establish recruiting communities that will seek out new members and bring back old ones.
We must unite a strategy that will seek to expand the knowledge of our organization.
We must unite to establish good communication links to help others to know who we are.
We must give them reasons to want to affiliate with our organization.
WE MUST BE A POSITIVE ROLE MODEL
However, in our quest for unity, we must never forget God and we must never forget to pray.
In looking at the reasons we need and should unite; I’m reminded of two fishermen who got trapped in a storm on a lake, one man asked the other “should we pray or should we row?” The wise companion responded “let’s do both.” We can keep our hopes and dreams alive and we can unite for common cause.
Let’s unite together for peace and power for this GRAND OLD ORDER.
Most Worthy Grand Superior
Grand Household of Ruth
