Conversation with Sally Morgenthaler
Just wanted to pass this on to the women here -

You're invited to a unique leadership event
designed especially for women.


Join our Midwest Conversation
May 7-9, 2007
The French Country Inn
Lake Geneva, Wisconsin

What is Conversations?
Conversations is a unique, three-day experience where women share their personal journeys as leaders in the Church, para-church ministries, business, academia, or the home. At Conversations, women meet in a relaxed and supportive context, guided and facilitated by Sally Morgenthaler - one of the Church’s most respected thinkers on culture and change. The goal is not only deep reflection and growth in individual leadership practices, but real community.

Why attend Conversations?
As women leaders, we experience unique struggles. Conversations was created so women of faith can come together and talk constructively about how to create change. Sue Monk Kidd points out, "Women will starve in silence until new stories are created which confer on them the power of naming themselves." At Conversations, women of substance do just that. They name themselves: their gifts, the barriers they must cross, and the opportunities they have to make lasting impact. They also create new stories that are empowering and life-giving. Because creating community is so important at Conversations, we must limit the group to 18.

Who is Sally Morgenthaler?
Sally is an author, leadership consultant, and photographer. She has been facilitating Conversations for over two years with women throughout the country. Her vast experience with leadership and ministry makes her uniquely qualified to be our guide. As a "midwife" to the group, she comes with inspiration, encouragement, and a crucial view of postmodern culture. There is no lazy thinking at Conversations! You will be challenged. But you will also be blessed by new relationships, well-rested, and all the better for having let your hair down with other wild and wonderful women.

For more information about Sally Morgenthaler, see her recent interview in New Wineskins Magazine. Her next book project is The Emergent Manifesto of Hope with Doug Pagitt and Tony Jones.

How do I register?
The cost of Conversations is $350.00. This includes all lodging, two meals, snacks, wine, chocolate and other necessities! One afternoon will be spent enjoying the town of Lake Geneva with meals and expenses (there is a lovely day spa!) not included.

    Leader? Not to be difficult but who gets to be a "leader" and how is it determined who is not a "leader"?

    Sally is absolutely wonderful. I would encourage any who can to go to this weekend 'retreat'. I hope to go to one here in CO as I wasn't able to go to the one locally this last year. Just having had some conversations and communications with her, I can tell you, you would be refreshed, challenged and encouraged.

    as per the leader thing - I read it as any women who is willing to be used by God. that can take many many forms - but times of learning and encouragement can be helpful to those choosing to lead by following God.
