Wednesday Festival: Kudos edition!
Sally Coleman got the letter she's been waiting for, informing her she's been accepted "for pre-ordination training for presbyteral ministry in the Methodist Church." You can drop by at Eternal Echos and congratulate her. (She's also got a blog on "film as part of a mythological tradition" here.)
reverendmommy posted a cap-and-gown picture from her big day.
There's more ...
Galleycat "got the shiny." See it here.
Last thoughts on Mother's Day?
Lorna went off to church on Mother's Day in Finland and got a message from God: "Du behövs!" Don't know what that means? You can find out here. Also, the puppies went off to their new homes; you'll find pictures here and here.
There's more on Mother's Day from Quotidian Grace, who talks about how her church marked Mother's Day in case it helps those looking for more inclusive ways of observing the day.
will smama kept Mothering Sunday generic, speaking about women and how they had impacted our lives, and wrapping it into the commitment that all folks in the church make during a baptism to help raise the person who is being baptized in the faith.
More mom stuff
Speaking of moms, Preacher Mom is enjoying her youngest daughter's imagination—and wondering if it may be rooted in some deep-seated memory. Read about it here.
Meanwhile, Hedwyg has been thinking about the river of life and found connections to ideas about standing up and walking. You can read about it here.
Reverendmother has a good list of things that come in threes.
Kievas Fargo has a recent post encompassing two favorite topics: science fiction and theology.
desert spirit shares a pair of graphic design blogs. You can see them at desert spirit's fire. The first is an interpretation of Revelation 22:2 from the second lectionary reading for last Sunday, Easter 6. The other one includes four different but related pairs of sandals, because "as my blog footer insists, "Traveler, there is no road; the way is made by walking" (from Cantares, by Antonio Machado).
In another graphic vein, your humble Wednesday Festivaler for the week (that's me, Widening Circles) ponders family photos and how they might open up a different way of thinking about how God loves us.
Noted in passing
Deb has been thinking about Jerry Falwell since she heard the news about his death, saying he calls up mixed emotions and thoughts and makes her "pray for a gentler, honest voice on the issues he raised." Read more at Another unfinished symphony ... .
Milton Brasher-Cunningham shares thoughts about Falwell, too. In his post here he imagines the late preacher's ultimate meeting with God—and wonders if God didn't have some surprises in store for him.
Well, I'm off to work. If you forgot to nominate or if I got this done before you got around to it, use the comments to let us know what you're up to. And get ready for next week: All you have to do is click on the hyperlinked words RevGal Wednesday Festival to create a mail message to the Festival team.
