Weekly Round-up
Hi all - time for our weekly round-up.

First some book discussion announcements. As mentioned below, our discussion of Rob Bell's Sex God starts next week. For June we are looking at the stories of Medieval women mystics in Monica Furlong's Visions and Longings. Then we have chosen Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love for July and Bart Ehrman's Misquoting Jesus for August. Everyone is welcome to participate in these book discussions and they all start of the 15th of their given month. All of these selections are available in the Emerging Women Amazon Store (buy there to support Emerging Women).

And now to highlight a few posts of note from Emerging Women this week.

Amy reflects on what it means not to worry and trust God.

Sonja reflects on the purpose and state of education.

Irim responds to two sermons she recently heard on "love one another."

I go off on The Dangerous Book for Boys

and Makeesha has a good suggestion for how women can reduce environmental waste. (had to link to it :) )

If you would ever like to suggest a post for this round-up (your own included!) just email it to emergingwomen@gmail.com

Have a great week and a blessed Mother's Day!

    Thanks for the heads up re: next books. I've certainly enjoyed the reads so far. Just wondering if anyone's heard anything about "The Physics of Christianity" by Frank Tipler? I'm not typically an "apologetics" fan, but the premise of this book--that contemporary physics jives with our understanding of Jesus--is fascinating. Unfortunately, reviews are mixed. If anyone's had a positive experience with this book, might this be a possible next read?

    They have Tipler's book at Border's, although I haven't taken a look at it yet. If you get a chance, check it out and let me know what you think.
