I had a great weekend in Indianapolis this past weekend attending the biennial conference of the EEWC, Evangelical & Ecumenical Women's Caucus. It was called "A Place at the Table" and explored ways we in the Christian context do and still do not invite people to the Eucharistic table. I was only able to attend the Saturday sessions and the closing worship service yesterday. But it was lovely.
My friend Virginia Ramey Mollenkott was speaking as was Rev. Elder Nancy Wilson, Moderator and spiritual leader of Metropolitan Community Church, my ministry home. I was privileged to spend some time with my friend and mentor Virginia and her partner. And I was able to enjoy Nancy and her assistant Connie's company as well. Great lectures, wonderful music including a concert by folk singer Carrie Newcomer, a closing worship service that really grounded me in a way that was very helpful.
I've been slow to join EEWC (EEWC Website) and slower to attend their conferences and read their GREAT newsletter Christian Feminism Today. So learn from my mistakes whether you're male or female identified and join this great organization. These people, women and men, have something special going on. You won't find me missing from one of their conferences again!
