Today is a very special day in my life, and in the life of hundreds of thousands of African-American women who are members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated. Today marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Sorority. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is a public service organization founded on Christian principles with an emphasis on scholarship, service, and sisterhood.
In my book My 52 Weeks of Worship, I share that I am a member of Delta Sigma Theta – and that membership has been, “….one of the best experiences that I have had in my life…”
This morning, while thousands are celebrating in Washington, DC, where the Sorority was founded on January 13, 2013, at Howard University, I will be celebrating with Sorors in Chicago.
But this morning, I logged on to a live streaming of the Ecumenical Service which was part of the Centennial Celebration weekend. And this powerful and magnificent worship service reminded me of #15 of The 52 Things I Learned from My 52 Weeks of Worship:
This morning I am thankful for the technology that allows us to share in worship experiences, even if we are not physically there. What a blessing.
Sorors of Delta Sigma Theta, Happy Founders Day.
