Daughters of the King
The object of the Order is the extension of Christ's Kingdom through Prayer, Service, and Evangelism. Their motto is:
For His Sake . . .
I am but one, but I am one.
I cannot do everything, but I can do something.
What I can do, I ought to do.
What I ought to do, by the grace of God I will do.
Lord, what will you have me do?
The chapter at King of Peace is named for Susanna Welsey (1669-1742), the daughter of a pastor and the wife of another, she was mother of 19 children, only eight of whom survived her. Two of her sons, John and Charles Wesley, were Anglican priests who served in the Colony of Georgia.
A supermom, who homeschooled her children in Latin, Greek and the classics, she also created a prototype of Sunday School in her own home for her children and others. Susanna said, “I am content to fill a little space if God be glorified.” She filled more than a little space—Susanna's life and witness had a lifelong impact on her sons who themselves had a tremendous effect on the spread of the Gospel and the history of Christianity.
I give thanks to God for the women who will today dedicate their lives to prayer and service through the Order of the Daughters of the King.
The Rev. Frank Logue, Pastor
