Good Monday to you all, RevGals and BlogPals! We have new members to welcome today.
First we have a BlogPal, A Reformed Catholic in the PCUSA:
"I grew up Italian R.C., fell away from the church, then married my wife, who brought me back into the church as a Presbyterian. Oh yeah, did I mention I'm a Computer Geek?"
Next, please welcome Liane at On the Road:
"I am a first year seminarian at Berkeley Divinity School at Yale. I am recently married and living in Rhode Island with my wonderful husband and two cats. I have spent far too long in school already, earning four degrees thus far: a B.A. in English Lit, a B.A. in Human Services, an M.A. in Mental Health Counseling, and an M.A. in Pastoral Care and Counseling. I hope this degree (an M.Div will be my last for awhile!)."
Liane is a postulant for priesthood in the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts.
Finally, meet Freddae, who blogs at Coffee, God and Me:
"I'm an almost 30-something independent woman of God. I'm a mother to a miracle who is now a handsome 3 year old, a wife, a friend, a daughter, the neighbor lady, the girl next door, a graduate student, a philanthropist, a theologist, a missiologist, a woman in ministry, a sinner, a saint, a sister, an aunt, a leader, a modern day women's suffragist, a freedom fighter, a writer, a fashionista, a dreamer, a realist, an optimist, a poet... I am a woman of worth far above rubies; the way God created me to be."
Welcome to all these new members! If you are a blogger and interested in joining the ring, you can find our membership criteria in the sidebar.
And now, a plug for next Monday, when mompriest will lead our RevGalBookPals discussion of Finding Beauty in a Broken World, by Terry Tempest Williams. We'll take a break from book discussions in December and instead ask you for recommendations in a discussion format on the 4th Monday. Watch the sidebar for books we will discuss in the New Year!
