“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.” (Matthew 5:14-15) The mission of Concerned Women for America of Maine is to shine forth God’s light on public policy. For too long, we have “hidden” our light from school boards, city halls, and the Capitol, or we have delegated that work to some group. Our representative form of government requires each of us to speak out and shine our lights. Concerned Women for America of Maine is here to educate you on the issues, encourage prayer, and help direct action to promote Biblical public policy. Your mission begins here!
