It's getting late so let's RAM ahead! Come on up and greet the latest to our neighborhood - don't be afraid. They won't byte.
Okay, I'm done with that. On to the intros!
Traveling Mercies (although I must admit I like the url better, 'theology nerd'.) Here you will find "The musings of a seminarian soon to be clergy on all things sacred and profane." She describes herself as "pastor in process. lover. explorer. reader. preacher. at this point in major transition."
Erica Schemper: "Presbyterian pastor, teacher, preacher, mom, occasional runner and biker, seeking to be a good disciple and make good disciples of my own kid and the kids I pastor." She has cats and a new baby girl... AND knitting needles. Don't all of those things come standard in the revgalblogpal kit?
You've Really Got to Love Your People: Reflections on life as a young, progressive, female pastor in (mostly) conservative rural America. I've been doing this church gig for over four years now, but people still say "You can't possibly be old enough to be a pastor!" Everyone says this is a good thing, but... Someone asked me recently if these four years have been a good ride. Yes, indeed. Not easy, but good. And full of stories, too many of which have been lost. Here's to saving stories!.
Take My Hand: I'm a United Methodist teenager making my way through the joys and trials known as American high school life, while looking forward to the future's possibilities in my life and Church.
there's a new wind in the Windy City (let's hope it doesn't break... sorry, it's been a long day). Written by Rachel Frey she says: I am the planter/visionary pastor of Wind of Peace Church - a vibrant, progressive, and inclusive church start-up in Chicago's South Loop. It's a great gig; I mean, I get to work for justice and to share the good news that life - and the world - can be radically different.
Amor Fati: Brooklyn: A place dedicated to learning to be present to myself, God, and others. I'm a thirty something new mom, teaching at a Christian college, feeling like a pastor but not ordained.
Head on over and introduce yourselves, and if like my older parishioners you also feel the need to apologize for me that's okay too.
