Big Event 7 is now in the books. From my perspective, it was a wonderful time of just BE-ing in the company of 39 amazingly smart and talented women. This was my 5th BE to attend. Suzanne Stabile was our Presenter for Enneagram work for which we got twenty contact hours (2 CEU’s, continuing education units). Suzanne and the Life in the Trinity Ministry are only about 40 minutes from where I live so I have been there many times. If you were unable to attend BE 7, but would like more information about the Enneagram, you could attend a workshop in Dallas (or download her Know Your Number course). My guest room is often empty!
The cruise itself was great fun with more chances for Galship than ever before. We learned several fun group games: Farkle, Spot It and Paper Telephone were quite fun and dissolved into giggles often. The Enneagram work is tough – the games were a nice way to off-set the inner work we were all doing.
A few of the RevGals who went have written about BE 7:
- Nikki is one of our Scottish (via Australia) RevGals. It was so fun to FINALLY meet her in person. She is as wonderful as you have always suspected, and one of our Rev. Dr. Gals!
- Liz is another Scottish RevGal who is very special to me and to many of us – this was not her first trip over the pond to join us for a BE. We learned much more about her wicked sense of humor this trip – it almost equals her beautiful spirit.
- Mary Beth and I have been roommates for every BE I have attended. I love the camaraderie and Galship we share each year. This year we worked hard on “the eyebrow problem” – tough stuff. Mine are looking better though, after we tried some different techniques.
- Gord was not on the BE trip, but he has written about Who’s Got Time, authored by two of our RevGals, Teri Peterson and Amy Fetterman. Teri was on this BE and Amy has been a BE Gal before also. I’m thinking of using Gord’s suggestion and using this book for a class on Lenten spiritual disciplines.
Please feel free to link to your blog in the comments – we would love to continue the fun, frivolity, learning and Galship! Watch this space and the FB Page for other chances to gather and learn together. The educational work is always fantastic, but the Galship is truly priceless.
