An Emergent Women's Gathering

Round Barn Retreat: An Emergent Women’s Gathering
Saturday-Sunday, April 29-30, 2006
The Round Barn Inn Bed & Breakfast, McCordsville, Indiana

Using the barn-raising metaphor inspired by our location, emergent women are gathering this Spring for a spiritual barn-raisin'! Metaphorically, we will 'clear our space' (share our histories, pain, and triumphs), 'set a new foundation' (envision a church or faith community that opens up and supports our experiencing God and God's creation more fully), and then - RAISE THAT BARN (give our vision 'legs'; put our dreams and hopes into action). Among the things we hope to accomplish is a publication by and for emergent women and a solid network for communication and community.

The schedule includes contemplative prayer times, the three major blocs of dialogue/discernment/smaller group discussion, as well as an evening time of sharing our personal gifts and passions and expertise. All details have not been finalized, but we anticipate the cost to be approximately $75 and includes three meals. (Housing not included; rates in Indy run $48 and up.) Registration will be limited to the first 50 women. [If we are overwhelmed with response, a second event is likely.]

Please contact Rev. Liz Buxton or Elizabeth Potter for more information. To check out the Round Barn Inn: To search for hotels in Indianapolis:

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
