don't eat alone: thoughts on food, faith, family, & friends; I'm trained as both an English teacher and a minister and am working out my calling as a chef and a writer. I'm the grateful spouse of a UCC minister and lover of two wonderful Schnauzers. - Apparently this is the place to score some great recipes!
Thoughts from the Heart on the Left: These are my thoughts about where the world is headed. Virginian by birth, I have made over forty moves in my life. This has allowed me to see various parts of the country and the world and it has helped give me an insight into the same. My first posting to this site gives an explanation of what I believe.
Homeschooling the Doctorate?: Sarah is a knitting, gardening, singing, cooking, homeschooling-mama, ordination track doctoral student in Theology and Ethics. Stephen is running, basketballing, Theology doctoral student-pastor, who is jealous that he can't collect hobbies the way his wife does. Isaac reads, swims, rides bikes, and asks God why he had to be born to a clergy couple with an unhealthy interest in metaphysics.
And if you want more from where that comes from check out:
Christian Ethics, PhD: Sarah is currently a doctoral student in Christian Theology and Ethics, and a Confirmed Candidate for ordination in the United Methodist Church. Ostensibly, she is interested in the constructed meaning and experience of suffering as an unarticulated foundation of bioethical commitments. Really, she just likes reading and thinking about stuff.
Shawna R. B. Atteberry: I am an ordained minister and freelance writer who lives in Chicago. I like to write about how God is active in our everyday, run-of-the-mill world. I think theology is our daily relationship with God, and how the Divine is always working to love and redeem us.
Sexuality and Religion: What's the Connection?: I'm a minister and a sexologist. Yes, those words do go together! I am also the director of the Religious Institute on Sexual Morality, Justice, and Healing. I hope you'll join me in exploring the connection between sexuality, religion, and spirituality, and the need for sexual justice in our faith communities and society.
Tangled Up in Blue: Thoughts and ramblings from an old soul, dressed up as a middle-aged suburban Chicago woman whom God created lesbian, still discerning God's call while denied ordination in her denomination because of being partnered. Recently discovered the cathartic powers of listening to Maria Callas. (See what I mean about rambling?) To God, in all her manifestations, be the glory.
With the recent influx we are still focusing on Phase 1 - the introduction. We will focus more on Phase 2 - Getting to know you at another time. Be sure to visit these folks and welcome them all.
