Emerging Women

I found a great post with a list if women writers we all need to be reading. Two of my favorites are on it, Phyliss Tickle and Diana Butler Bass. I will have to check out the others. Brian McLaren wrote the post.

The other day I found Phyliss Tickel on Facebook. On a whim I asked her to add me as one of her friends. She did! What a world we live in.

2010 Emergent Village Theological Conversation

Hey gang,

Susanne and I just actually registered for the 2010 Emergent Village Theological Conversation in Atlanta November 1-3!

I'll be happy to bring back whatever insights/resources there are which might look promising. At the very least maybe we can have some dialogue about the topics here on our blog.

Even better, why don't some of you consider signing up as well. Check it out at the Emergent Village web site above.
