Howdy, all. I've been meaning to post the resources that were recommended in my discussion circles at the Emergent Women's Re-Gathering.

    Marva Dawn is the correct name. And she writes wonderfully.

    Glad to see this blog. Count me in as a faithful supporter.

    I am so thankful to have found this blog today.

    I, too, just found the blog today. I am a Presbyterian Pastor working on a judicatory level with churches in southeast Texas. I specialize in transformational ministry and new church development. I have been a listener, mostly, of the emerging conversation for years and have been a student of Missional Church writings for over a decade. I look forward to reading and participating in this blog.

    passingthru is a woman's screen name at www.theooze.com. i think a person could search for her by screen name and find her blog from there ...

    Hey ... good to find ya all! Great notes from our Barn gathering.

    Let me suggest the catalogue of books/authors that are promoted by Christians for Bibilical Equality (CBE) Lots of good, although not highly publicized, female authors!

    Although I am a male, I am excited to see a place where women are taking the lead in the emerging conversation. I'd like to pass on any female influences I come across, if that's okay. Here's my first author/theologian, and although geared towards youth ministry, she has much to say to the whole community:

    Kenda Creasy Dean

    I passed along the Emergent/C e-mail to our small, emerging, missional community, so I'm hoping particularly a few of the women will check out this blog. We're in Scranton, PA, and here's our info:

    Thanks for the info, everyone! I've incorporated your suggestions & will continue to update this as more comes in.

    I would recommend Sallie McFague as well.

    Hey, loved Julie Clawson's comments on the Emergent/C newsletter. I'm glad to know you had an encouraging and educational time together.

    Keep your voices up, sometimes the other issues facing emergents males distract us, and we need to be reminded not to charge ahead until everyone is at the table. I've heard Brian McLaren say twice now that he doesn't want this to go from a conversation to a movement until everyone that should be there is at the table.

    I'm a church planter and have five women on my core team of eight. I've told them, there is no male and female in our midst as far as using God's gifts in the church.

    Back when I was in a PCA church in Manhattan, I tried during a public church business meeting to get the pastor to start a public conversation on the role of women in church leadership, and he shut me down cold - publicly. All the women were shocked and looked over at me with horror. At that moment, I really understood their pain.

    thanks so much for posting these! I have to highly recommend Phyllis Tickle, she has a fantastic way with words and her stories show how she encounters the world with a deeply engaged mind.

  • At 6/01/2006 12:17:00 PM, Blogger J. Michael Matkin

    I would take a look at Lillian Calles Barger. She has a book called Eve's Revenge, and runs an organization called the Damaris Project that might be worth looking into as well.

    Thanks for your comments Jeff.

    A fun thing about tables is that one can always 'add another leaf' as more and more people take a place at the table ... Brian Mc. might be in for a long wait cause I know lots of women with JC-invitations in hand and are ready to pull up a chair! (Just hope we don't need a secret password to get through the door!)
