This is the part of the week where we will get to meet new members of the web ring and greet those we already know in a more in depth fashion. Reverend Mommy and I will be your hosts. Currently we are still working on our blogger questionaire so for today I will focus on the 'meet' part...
CHECK THESE BLOGGERS OUT!!!
Melissa is a seminary student at Drew Theological School in New Jersey. Her blog can be found at: Going on to Perfection... Well, that is one of her blogs anyway. I'll let you peruse to see if there is another way to get to know her.
In her own words: I'm originally from Maine, but currently living in exile in New Jersey. I'm a United Methodist from birth, and hope to be an ordained elder serving the New England Conference one day. I'm currently fascinated by the emerging church movement, and part of me thinks it would be interesting to start an emergent UMC in New England. But, we'll see if that's what God has in store for me!
Right now she is walking through the discernment process of choosing a supervised ministry. You also gotta love that she just jumped right into the revgalblogpal Friday Five.
Barbara is from Oklahoma and describes herself as: a postmodern homemaker, at-home mom, homeschooler, and afterschooler, with a Web-based business and a, um, calling for faith formation. How did I get here from grad school in meteorology? My best answer: "Grace happens."
She blogs at Effervesence. I spied with my little eye 2 kids, nearly a year of posts, knitting needles, books and YES the Revgalblogpal Friday Five.
Next we welcome Chosen who blogs at: Warrior's Heart (although I got to say I like her url better: preachinmomma.)
In her own words: Married with children. (5!) I am a writer with several projects in the works that will be published soon. And...Oh yeah--I just happen to be called to preach!
Located in Tennessee, 'Chosen' blogs on Scripture, marriage and being the best Christians we can be.
Finally a confused welcome to St. John's Rev Abi. Confused because I don't think Rev Abi is new but what the heck! Here she is in her own words: I am a female United Methodist Minister serving in the Shoals area of AL. I've been doing this for quite some time now, but I don't know it all, and am not an old hat. I have served in a variety of ministry positions. I am married with three wonderful children, 2 dogs and 2 cats.
She most recently posts about Fourth of July memories and I know she is a frequent commenter on our own blogs.
WELCOME REV ABI, CHOSEN, BARBARA AND MELISSA!!!
