On Sunday June 27, 2010, members of The Young Clergy Women Project will gather for three days at the Candler School of Theology in Atlanta, Georgia for the Conference 2010: Leading as Ourselves: Discerning Models for Ministry. Together, we will learn from the wisdom of Rev. Melissa Clodfelter and Rev. Beth Kennett as well as build community as young clergy women.
As the events unfold over these three days, you may be interested in what insights are being shared.
You might just wonder what in the world a bunch of young clergy women do when they get together. Well, we encourage you to follow our wonderings and wanderings through the various tools of social networking that you enjoy.
We’ve asked a few women that will gather with us to blog, tweet and Facebook about their experiences and their insights; below the fold is more information.
While you may already follow TYCWP on Twitter and find The Young Clergy Women Project in your Facebook news feed, you’ll also want to include these young clergy women in your social network.
On the blogs…
Jenny Sjogreen will be frequently updating her blog, Samtal med J. If Jenny happens to post in her native tongue – and your Swedish isn’t perfect – you may want to use the help of Google Translate. Jenny will be traveling overseas with her friend Maria Bergius-Kramer and may also post on their shared blog, Clergy Chicks a Traveling.
Teri Petersen will also be updating her blog Clever Title Here with her sassy insights into what is happening with the gathered community of women at the Conference 2010. She’s also likely to post a bit about visiting the city that fostered her theological education as Teri is a graduate of Columbia Theological Seminary just outside of Atlanta.
You’ll want to keep track of three women that will regularly answer Facebook’s gnawing question, “What’s on your mind?” Be sure to add Sarah Kinney Gaventa, Katie Yahns and Laura Stephens-Reed to your circle of young clergy women friends.
