Hi.

A few more posts about the Emerging Women's Re-gathering have been posted to the Emergent-us blog. Check them out:

Emerging Women 3, Lynette Davidson
Emerging Women 2, Sarah Notton
Emerging Women, Julie Clawson (also HERE, on this blog)

Since there doesn't seem to be an easy way to comment over there, I figured this would be as good of a place as any to share any thoughts you might have.

Enjoy!

    From Lynette Davidson's post ...

    "We all were the experts, bringing our presence, our stories, our knowledge, our questions, and our lives to the table. This was a weekend of listening and sharing, learning and encouraging, finding common ground amidst differences."

    Sounds like a great weekend to me ... wish I could have been there. Sounds like the emerging women's voices are alive and well ... with more connections and a lot of prayer, I am sure we will all go far.

    Sarah,
    Your post on Emergent-us really struck a cord with me. As a PhD student in Computer Science, I see a lot of the sort of "pinch-her-cheeks-"isn't-it-cute-when-girls-try-to-think?"" things happen. I wrote a response to your post on my blog here

    Thanks for not ignoring the elephant in the room

    csdl ... read your post on your blog. Enjoyed your thoughts. Yes, the 'good ole boy' club is alive and WELL in the circles of pastoring! A 2002 Duke report on women in ministry in the trad. denom. which have been ordaining women for 30+ years still reported an overwhelming sexist presence within their ranks ... a stained glass ceiling!

    Sexism, like racism, (or any 'ism' which values one created human being as less than another) is a human problem that continues to taint every part of life.

    But I believe our voices make a difference and women's voices need to heard in every sphere of influence that we're presented. Glad to know that your voice is in the CS field! Awesome!

    Thanks to all the women who have fought to be heard before us, our voices are being heard in more spaces and places than ever before. There is great HOPE and results out there!
