LWML SOUTH DAKOTA DISTRICT BANNER
The Banner Processional at LWML conventions sets the tone for the convention as it beautifully expresses the convention theme and highlights the God-given talents of our districts.
This is the LWML South Dakota District banner for the 2023 LWML Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, June 22–25. The theme is "Celebrate the Lord of the Nations" based on Psalm 33:12-13, Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage! The Lord looks down from heaven; he sees all the children of man.
One of our Young Woman Representatives, Vania Asmus, is the designer of our LWML Milwaukee convention banner. The initial design comes from our LWML SD District 2023 Spring Retreat with the theme being "With One Voice" from Romans 15:5–7. The design was created to show us coming together as a whole "with one mind and one voice [to glorify] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ." We incorporated the retreat design into our Milwaukee banner because we see strong similarities between the two themes. As God is the Lord of the nations, with one voice we sing His praises and worship Him.
