Emerging Women
For all the women out there interested in the emerging church - we now have a blog. Check out Emerging Women to see whats happening in this community. Here'e part of the welcome/description of the blog -

Welcome emerging women!

Right away there are issues. Who are the emerging women? What defines an emerging woman? Those are questions I won’t even attempt to answer on my own. I hope as a community we will gather together to use our voice within this emerging conversation. Why? Because we need each other, because our voice is not always heard, because we have voices that need to be heard.

I envision this space as a gathering place of sorts for women with some connection to the emerging conversation. It can be used to discuss ideas, theology, philosophy, and praxis. It can be a space to share frustrations as a woman, as a believer, or as an emerging thinker. It can be a place to share what you have written, to ask questions, to share experiences, recommend books, to encourage and give advice, or whatever we feel like making it. I hope we will use it and gain and grow from it.

The space is open to whoever desires to post and join the conversation. I encourage anyone interested to add comments, to respond, and get the conversation going.

So check it out, join the conversation, and support the effort!

    Thanks for doing this. Saw the link on Emergent email.

    And I'm a JJ Abrams fan as well. Loved the Lost finale. Alias -- not so much.

    hi a male with some 25 years in ministry, i want to say how much i appreciated your Emergent article (not on onehandclapping) but on the REgathering...could i just say that in addition to gender issue, there is a deeper issue of control/power in churches that we need freed from...much hurt and pain in ministry (perhaps mostly from men) comes from folks who just have to be in control...Jesus had another idea..."my yoke is easy, my burden is light" ... guys...give it up.
