The ICFLC Annual Meeting is a time for business concerns as well as a time for building community and strengthening spirituality of ecumenical women leaders from all the regions of the world. The ICFLC members represent FLC women who have faithfully prayed for justice, peace and reconciliation and set aside their least coins taken care of by WCC Finance Team. For 2012, prayers and least coins are to support women’s program of 12 participating ecumenical organizations; 41 women projects for justice and peace; and 5 young women scholars. “May the Lord give you increase, both you and your children.” (Psalm 115:14 NRSV)
