I have been in the midst of moving for the past several months, which means we have a bunch of new members to our blogging community who have been patiently waiting for me to get to them! This move has been a long time coming, and so has this introduction of fantastic bloggers that you definitely need to be reading. Please hop around and offer a warm welcome to:
Marguerite, who is a United Church of Christ “pastor, preacher, wife, lesbian feminist, mother, friend and grandmother among other identities. I enjoy reflecting on the ordinary and sometimes extra ordinary occurrences that happen in my life and in the world around me.”
Carolyn, who is “an ordained Presbyterian minister, music teacher, and freelance writer. I write about intersectional feminism, racial justice, and faith. I’m active in racial justice ministry at All Saints Church in Pasadena.”
Maren Tirabassi, pastor and author of several books including many liturgical resources, leader of “workshops on writing poetry, liturgy, memoir or fiction. I have experience with schools, senior settings, faith communities, correctional facilities, recovery and survivor groups, and English Language Learners. And for fun?? I love hiking, swimming, board games, dogs (especially beagles), and attending science fiction and fantasy conventions.”
Carol, who is a licensed lay minister at a church in Beloit, Wisconsin.
Barbara, who “went from hopeful Hollywood actress, to the streets of Jerusalem, to seminary, to pulpit, to being an author. Everything I have done has been because of the people around me. I dance with angels – you are one of them.”
And last but not least (this month), Sally, formerly of Eternal Echoes, is blogging again at Eternal Footsteps! You’ll definitely want to check out the new internet home of one of our long-time members. She is a Methodist minister, “a seeker of truth, a partaker of life in all it’s fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off!”
Enjoy all these new and renewed friends!
