Fellowship Tea


Teas are full of sweet treats, yet the fellowship is the sweets part of any tea time events. 

The Christian Communicators tea at the Cove in Asheville, North Carolina was a delightful time with a banquet of yummies, tablescapes of smiles, harmonious conversations, and brewing friendships. Charm filled the room as the ladies graciously shook hands and gave praise to the Cove staff for the experience of an afternoon tea. 


These ladies came across the nation with the same desire to become ambassadors for Jesus Christ. Throughout the five day conference they steeped in programs that helped them to write their purpose statement for their speaking ministry, manage the business side as a professional speaker, and so much more. The tea was a reprieve before preparing for their filmed videos the following day.  


However, fellowship brewed throughout the conference beginning with a social mix and mingle to tear filled goodbyes at the last luncheon. A community of loyalty had been built in those short days with means of ongoing connections of support, encouragement, and inspiration. Now they are discovering the overflow of a sisterhood of camaraderie that extends to the past Christian Communicators grads reaching out to these new CC grads. 


It’s a fulfilling experience to see women championing one another with endorsements,direction, and promoting one another through writing and speaking opportunities. So much is accomplished when we women practice hospitality. 



Sweet fellowship at a tea brings out the best in all of us. Christian Communicators serve the
best as they brag on the great things God has done and the grace of Jesus Christ.

We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you, also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son,                                    Jesus Christ.   1 John 1:3 NIV

Words of Wonder


For the word of God is living and active.  

Sharper than any double-edge sword, 
it penetrates even to diving should and spirit, 
joints and marrow; 
it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12

Peace comes when we steep in the Word of God. 
Steeping in scripture is like a tea bag steeping in hot water. 
Change comes. 
God's truth permeates a weary soul with a renewed strength to face another day. 

Reward yourself with a pause in Christ's uplifting presence 
by using a cup of tea as an excuse to take time to read and ponder His word today. 

Uplifting blessings, 
Carolyn
