A local church held a women's conference Saturday in order to give women time to reflect.
Good Shepherd Ministries in Meridian hosted their 2nd Annual Women's Conference. This year's theme was 'A Journey to Wholeness'. Gwen Harris acted as the minister over the conference and explains the significance of the theme.
"A breakthrough; we are going to be made whole. Similar to when a woman touched the hem of Jesus' garment, she was made whole.
She had to issue blood, but she touched that garment and Jesus felt the deliverance from him and asked 'who touched me?'. He knew someone touched him and she was made whole," explains Minister Harris.
Harris and other organizers say the first two years of the conference have been successful. They do intend to plan another one next year that's even better.
