RevGal Friday Five: Meeting up!

  • 1. What would the meeting be like? (Continuing Ed? Retreat? Outside Speakers? Interest Groups? Workshops? Hot Stone Massages? Pedicures? Glorified Slumber Party?)

I'm with Songbird on this one: Primarily, lots of time to chat-- mixed in with spiritual prayer/renewal opportunities, and perhaps some common interest discussion group things. But not so tightly scheduled as to not allow for flexibility and breathing space.

  • 2. When in 2008 might you be able to attend? January? Shortly after Easter? Summer? Fall? Some other time?

Spring, in the "downtime" after Easter, would be lovely.

  • 3. Where would your dream meeting location be? (Urban Hotel? Rural Retreat Center? New England Camp? Southwestern Fantasy Hotel? Far away from civilization? Nearby Outlets or Really Great Thrift Stores?)

I have no particular preference, though non-urban tends to be better than urban, in my little world.

  • 4. Who would make a great keynote speaker? (That's if #1 leads us in that direction.)

I'm more interested in the RevGal Meet & Greet prospect than I am in listening to a speaker, however gifted s/he may be. That said... perhaps someone like Kathleen Norris? Or golly... Katharine Jefferts Schori would have some things to say.

  • 5. Did I leave out something you want to suggest?

Only plenty of advance notice, please! The clerical calendar fills up so quickly. . .

Indeed flexibility and breathing space.

I Put down the two names also, Kathleen Norris and Katharine Jefferts Schori.
Hey dreaming big.
