Crossposting: Why I Need RevGalBlogPals

Note: This is a reposting and expanded version of a Facebook post on a private page. It retells some of my own story to ordained ministry. (If you’re a regular blog reader, you can move on now…) I share this story because RevGalBlogPals is a…

Refocusing

  It wasn’t in the plans for our senior pastor to come down with some form of the Maryland “plague.” Nor had I planned on preaching tomorrow. As I did some chores and cooked dinner this evening, I meditated on the verses for tomorrow’s…

NaBloPoMo: Spiritual Practice

NaBloPoMo Day 17: Let’s join up with Laura Stephens-Reed:  Write about a spiritual practice that keeps you connected to God and to others. I have created lists of people that I care about and pray for, which I have updated over the years. I…

Friday Five: Push or Pull?

The traffic crawled for over a mile this afternoon and this was most of what I could see: It was the inspiration for this week’s Friday Five (which I’m hosting this week over at RevGals). Play along if you’d like! I am fortunate to…

Refugees and “compassion fatigue”

This week I’m hosting the Friday Five over at RevGalBlogPals. You’re invited to play along in the comments if you’d like. 🙂 We often encourage each other to “bloom where you’re planted.” I like the symbolism, but realized that RevGals and Pals hail from…

Blog Tour: There’s a Woman in the Pulpit

It’s hard to believe, but almost ten years ago, I began a journey towards becoming a pastor. At that time, I had only met a handful of women pastors, and NONE of them were in my denomination.  I learned from them, laughed with them,…

Friday Five: Whining in a Winter Wonderland

I’m hosting the RevGals Friday Five! Play along if you’d like! It’s official. If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, you are experiencing winter. SO… tell us: 1. Winter: What do you think about it in general? Do you love it? Hate it? Or say,…

Friday Five: Recovery Edition

Over at RevGalBlogPals this week, I’m hosting the Friday Five! Play along if you’d like! WHOOOOOOOOSH! That was the air rushing out of our collective pool of energy. Whether you led one small service or 5 huge ones, let’s talk about recovery mode. In…
