So amidst the recent surge of posts, here's the Weekly Round-up.
But first some blog news.
I finally got around to getting the welcome to Emerging Women/ FAQ's document up. It is linked in the sidebar. This is a basic introduction to the blog and the group Emerging Women. It covers the blog rules and some of the questions I am frequently asked. If you've joined the blog really recently, you will have read a lot of the stuff in this already. But if you aren't a member or joined awhile ago, I highly recommend you read it over. Read it here
We did start this month's book discussion on Hagar, Sarah, and their Children
yesterday. It's a few posts down, but easily accessible from a sidebar link if it gets too buried. Everyone is welcome to join in even if you haven't read the book. Click here
for the discussion.
The book selection for April has been posted. We will be reading Colossians Remixed
by Brian Walsh and Sylvia Keesmaat. And don't forget that the March book is How (not) to Speak of God
by Peter Rollins. We are looking for suggestions for upcoming months, so send them in!
And one final news bit. The Midwest Emerging Women Gathering is filling up fast, but there still are spots available. The registration deadline is noon on March 9th, but it's first come first served. So far we have a great group of women participating and I'm very excited about how its coming together. If you want to register click on the link in the sidebar.
Here are some of the events and blog posts of note from around the Emerging Women community from this past week. Anyone is welcome to submit posts or events to be included here to firstname.lastname@example.org. Lisa
