But first a public service anouncement: The Frappr map on the side bar is very exciting and finding out you live closer to a favorite blogger than you thought can also be great. Please be careful about leaving specific locations of folks on blogs and comments. Although a lot of us use our names and pictures and most of us could be figured out with minimal sleuthing it is still important to respect folks' desire to remain as anonymous as possible. Thanks.
Now for the good stuff...
Welcome Auntie Em!
In her own words: I'm seeking my role in Ministry in the United Methodist Church. Finding some interesting friends along the path. She is a cat fan and judging from the pics a very gifted knitter/crocheter, etc...
Welcome Church-stuff-More or less!
JD is new to the journaling crowd and has been on a Lutheran journey: Does the church make sense or do we make it too hard for people to come in? I think yes and yes and the task then is to make it easier. Maybe for someone out there, this will be the case. I write as a Lutheran (or, perhaps a Lutherpalian) although I might seem out of the mainstream from time to time. That's okay, isn't it? Let's blog on.
Welcome Transplanted Buckeye!
In her own words: Ramblings of an native Ohioan learning to live in the South. Sara is located in Texas now and from her posts seems to be enjoying it. I saw references to brisket, rodeos and wild pig as a menu item.
Welcome Listing Straight!
In her own words: I like lists. I have a toddler, husband, and church, so I feel like I'm going through life slightly off-kilter. Listing Straight is a long-time Revgalblogpal commenter and we are glad to welcome her into the official blogging community.
Welcome Sunday's Child!
In her own words: Sunday’s child looked, really looked, at the world around her. At that moment, a life filled with grace discovered a world with too little of it. She almost looked away, and she almost dove right in. But she found herself unable to do either. So she blindly waded into her indecision, searching for some light.
She just celebrated an anniversary so be sure to send your best.
Welcome all of you to the ring. It is so great to have you aboard!
