Who Are We?

This fall, my congregation did an exercise: we asked everyone to come up with one word describing our church, and we put all those words into a Wordle and used the various fun word clouds we created as bulletin covers, stewardship advertising, and artwork around the building. It was insightful as well as pretty.

Now I'm working on a project...not a one-word project, necessarily, but something along those lines, and I need your help!
I'm looking for the word(s), phrase, or sentence you would use to describe RevGalBlogPals. Who are we? What are we? Who and what are we for you? What does being part of RGBP mean to you, your life, your ministry? What's your experience of our community?
I promise to post the beauty, whatever form it takes (it could be a wordle, it could be a hymn, it could be...well...lots of things!), when it's done! Thanks!

  1. Community of colleagues and peers. (I'm the only English-speaking, female, ordained minister from the mainstream Protestant denominations in this city (Beijing) as far as I know. I know there's another five hours by train from here, and there are a few male ministers from liturgical traditions. There may well be others but RevGals gives me a wonderful virtual community of peers and colleagues).

    (lay preacher in a church that is not unanimous about the validity of women in teaching ministry. Reading this blog reminds me I'm not alone.)
