Monday's almost summertime edition

Lots of new members to kick off the summer...please join me in offering a warm welcome to these new friends in our wonderful community!

Bonnie over at Bonnie's Books--a retired United Methodist pastor who reads "to explore ideas." Hop over and see what she's exploring today!

Join Deb of Suddenly BiPolar as she ventures into a brave new world of living with illness, and as she seeks to live a grateful life. These two blogs are a way Deb, an ordained PCUSA minister, continues to live into who she is today.

Jane over at Jane's Journey welcomes you to her land of wit, wisdom, musing, and interesting stories. She also has a recipe blog! :-)

Sandi, a United Methodist Pastor who blogs at Life From Where I Stand, decided when she was a little girl that she wanted to help people. She lives that out through ministry (16 years ordained!), marriage (10 years and still going!), and motherhood. She says of herself: "that is me – married with one child trying to change the world by the grace of God."

Visit WomanistNTProf, an ordained elder in the African Methodist Episcopal Church and professor at Ashland Theological Seminary in Detroit. Her blog, Womanist Biblical Scholar Reflections, is where she "shall share my personal musings, biblical reflections, & information. I encourage transformative thoughts & actions that will enable us to live as God intended-with faith, joy, wisdom, love for ourselves & our fellow humans, courage despite fear, w/anticipation for a better today & tomorrow. I welcome your constructive responses. I don't expect you to agree with everything I share, but reflect & dialogue with me."

Visit Diana, who lives in Santa Barbara and is "A dreamer, a worker, a wife, a mom and grandmom, a retired pastor, a preacher, a developing spiritual director, a very amateur photographer, a sometime writer, a constant dieter (with little long-term success), a homemaker-turned-professional-pastor at midlife. I live in one of the most beautiful places on God's earth with my husband of 45+ years and together, we look forward to whatever it is that comes next"--she's blogging over at DRGT: Just Wondering.

Margaret blogs at Musings of an Altomom, and she's a regular participant here at RGBP, especially at the Preacher Party! She is: "a mother, daughter, niece, aunt and sister. In my former life, I was a librarian and I loved my last job as a reference and outreach librarian at Tulane Medical School Library. Now, I am an Episcopal priest in a small parish. As much as I loved being a librarian, I love being a priest more. Even on the worst days, I know this is what I am supposed to be doing. When I'm not working - and I am not a Type A personality - I like to read, do crossword and jigsaw puzzles, eat out with friends and take in a good storyteller. And I love to travel! I have two dogs and a cat who live with me and two grown children who do not. That's my life. Maybe not very exciting but very good."

Pastor Lynn, who's also been hanging out at the Preacher Party, blogs at new every morning. She is "Mom, wife, aging farm girl, baker of cookies, chaser of butterflies, Pastor of Salem Lutheran Church in West St. Paul, Minnesota."

What an awesome group of new friends--stop by and say hi!
