Welcome to the Wednesday Festival, or as I've dubbed it -- Wednestival. Enjoy the posts -- and those around the ring. It's great fun to discover (or re-discover!) a blog that really speaks to you.
On the road, again?
April would like to invite folks over to her place for a discussion on young clergy on the move to new congregations.
Like many others, Preacher Mom is contemplating a call. She would love some input! Also, she's looking for sermon planning systems that might actually work (me, too -- me, too!). Suggestions welcome here.
Gallycat has decided to apply for her dream job and would love your well-wishes (and prayers)!
Reactions and Challenges
Join Kievas in discussing her reactions to two commonly used terms: "saved" and "born-again".
Sally was challenged this weekend to consider the God we worship -- you can find her short reflection here.
Photos and Reflections

Contests and Gatherings
Also over the Emerging Women blog has posted information about their upcoming gathering... I'm sensing some blogger meet-up potential!
Sacred Art of Living has a contest going on as she nears her 20,000th visitor! Go find out about it!
Edited to add: There were a good number of folks in Myrtle Beach recently.... Check out some of the posts by these folks: Rev. Abi, ReverendMommy, Gavin, Beth Quick, The Best Dog Ever, and The Phaith of St. Phransus. Many of these folks have links to others who were there as well as multiple postings about the happenings -- be sure to page through!
Sorry to have missed this on the first go 'round.
