What Clergywomen Do When We Are Away From Our Churches

There might be wine.

But mostly there is catching up, praying, supporting, mentoring, and sharing.  My clergy group has been meeting for about 18 years and it makes an enormous difference in our energy levels as we take a break from day to day ministry.  One of the highlights today was meeting with several young women who are – themselves – seminarians or Young Adult Volunteers preparing to begin seminary.  They are already exceptional leaders.

Within our clergy group, there is over 300 years of professional ministry.  But we still have so much to learn.
