Recommended reading: United Methodist Women turns 150

This past Saturday was the 150th anniversary of the founding of United Methodist Women. It was founded March 23, 1869 in Boston, MA, as the Woman's Foreign Missionary Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

I (David Scott) had the pleasure of being at the 150th anniversary celebration organized by the New England Conference UMW at Boston University. For those who missed out, you can see a live-stream of the event here. You can also see social media messages related to the event by following the #umw150boston hashtag on Twitter and on Facebook.

For more on the anniversary beyond the celebration in Boston, you can visit UMW's 150th anniversary website and follow the hashtag #umw150 on Twitter and on Facebook.
