Hi everyone, I just want to introduce myself here and join the conversation. As I mentioned above, I'm Sarah, I am an Episcopal Priest (almost) working in Michigan. I just graduated from seminary this spring and my first job out in the real world is basically that of church planter. My diocese has asked me to form house churches among 18-30 yr olds and that has been what I've been working to do for the last four months or so. The emerging conversation is still very new to me, and I have been catching up, so to speak, since I started work. I am very traditionally trained and attended a very old school where anything emerging was simply a whisper and by no means on the radar screen for most people there (certainly not me). I'm very excited to have a ministry such as this and am learning a lot. After four months I am hearing some good things as far as people being open to something--things are slow going, but I'm feeling positive.
I was very pleased to find this blog and look forward to hearing about your stories and ideas. I have a blog
that I created to process what I learn and to reach out to the people that I am meeting. Anyway, I'm glad to be here!
