Faith and Policy Unit
Role of the Faith & Policy Unit:

- To enable members to be active in areas of faith and policy

Mothers’ Union Listening, Observing, Acting – in step with God, is our theme for 2019.
MULOA puts spirituality back into members’ lives and our worldwide organisation. Spiritual transformation can and does happen, but this is an going process, which has already evidenced shared goals and shared “good news”. The Church can be rebuilt and re-energised through Bible reading/ study, which brings others back to God and his plan for us all.
Jesus Christ is our spiritual leader and as Christians, we grow day by day to become more Christ-like. If we don’t tell others about Christ, who is going to? Much of Jesus’ teaching shocked his listeners. He wanted them to love their enemies, to do good to those who were spiteful to them, to ” take up your cross” daily. This challenge has not gone away. We are still called to turn the world upside down, to serve others and put our faith in God. We all have our part to play.
Prayer is the bedrock on which MU is founded and it is the most powerful tool we have to bring us closer to God. The uniqueness of MU is its spirituality and the most difficult and decisive part of prayer is the ability to listen. Jesus’ attractiveness did not lie in glitter and hype but in his ability to listen and to be with others. People relate to people and by encouraging engagement with our members, so our faith journey will develop and grow.
We aim to develop the faith of our members, and the faith of Christians of all ages. We aim to encourage and nurture those new to faith, and reach out in Christian love to those of little or no faith.
“There are many things in life that will catch your eye but only a few will catch your heart – pursue those
