Welcome to the Wednesday Festival! This week's nominations were varied and fabulous, of course. Thanks to all who nominated, and of course to all who write such wonderful pieces for us all to read. Don't forget to send in nominations for next week's Festival -- we've done away with the categories for any given Wednesday, so anything goes as long as it's on a RevGalBlogPal blog!
Revem has helped start a new worship that reaches out to young people! Go give her some encouragement. Tripp posts about his installation service! Huzzah! Melissa blogged about her first Sunday as a Student Assistant Pastor over at Going on to Perfection.
Walking his Path is blogging about her experience, good and bad, at Drew Seminary. Reverend Mommy was the smarty-pants seminarian. Love it, love it, love it. Sally asks about the wisdom of state universities (in the UK) of giving expensive freebies to potential students. Rev-to-be-Mibi is sick but is really doing well with her Hebrew in seminary.

Psaltery has an interesting take on the what they are teaching young women these days. On the other hand, Owl's Song discusses Iron John/Iron Jesus in the church, but you have to follow the link in the post as well.
