Thanks Andrea for the welcome. Feel great to be connected. Yes, surely I shall contribute and be part of this wellspring. May life flow abundantly from this spring and good wishes as you tap the sources.In solidarity, Kochurani
Thanks for the information. I have already registered end of last year and I set it up in such a way that I will receive all e-mails.
As for the e-mails sent to the group list by other members, that I don't receive, could the reason be that there are separate group list or e-mail list for EWA 1, 2, and 3 participants? I remember I used to receive e-mails sent to the group list before and after EWA 1 and 2 (including e-mails from fellow participants).
Anyway, I guess this is now irrelevant. My Yahoo e-mail account should be fine as I check it a bit more often now. Edmund still checks his old e-mail, albeit not regularly, and he still gets EWA e-mail so there's no problem on Edmund';s side. He's just too busy especially now that he will be the director of the Doctor of Ministry Program in CTU.
As for the EWA venue I suppose it will still be in Thailand. If you're having problems with the venue in Hua Hin the CT might want to consider Bangkok Christian Guest House. It's in the middle of the city, the airport bus passes very near it (just a block from the place) and it's nice and clean (I think it's run by the Protestant Church) . Edmund has used it for one of his conferences. Here's a link to their web site: http://www.bcgh.org/
As you can see I'm not that much into internet social networks for lack of time. I did read all the comments just now and found them interesting. It's also good to see and know where certain old familiar faces are right now and what they're doing. Any more news on the dates for EWA 4? Is it still going to be sometime in February?
Hi, thanks to invite us joining this forum. next time i will share the project where I and John Prior and other friends in Ina are working for campaign on Justice for women who are the victims of violence, based on religious community. And nice to hear the news from Dzintra about her promotion. all the best. Iswanti.
Women are still ruling Latvia. We did not surrender our positions yet and do not intend so. In our country women are still choosing men and men are still baby sitting while women are in charge.
I am not an exception. I got a promotion - associate professorship. In our country context this means- more job and more responsibility. The last conference Pakistani friends from EWA somehow promised to import some men to Latvia, and we are waiting....,
Ok, to be serious,
I think that in between of conferences we need to issue a collection on scientific articles on women and leadership. What do you think about it. EWA women has excellent editorial board.
I always have the best memories about EWA, the place where a real connection takes place, and where there is a place and space for every voice to be heard.
Just back from Balaton, Hungary, at the IAMS (International Association for Mission Studies) Conference. 240 scholars from around the world. Yes, most were male like myself. However the Executive is always has gender and denominational balance.
I coordinate a study group called BISAM (Bible Study and Mission). Our project over the coming years is "Bible, Nation and Empire: The use of the Bible by biblical and mission scholars and by grassroots and congregations."
Any takers? Would be very interested in anyone who would like to nework (via emailing) with around 30 scholars from five continents and who would like to research on this theme. The ends results are usually published.
Thank you very much Andrea for including me for the 4th EWA conference. I am undergoing too much work pressure because of freinds coming to visit and collect human rights situation and all these human rights researchers come to me first to get the whole situation of human rights, political situation (which is very critical now) and about other human rights organisations. Most of my time is spent these days with these international visitors and then at least five to eight family conflicts come to our office for counselling or advice or legal help.
Thank you again for acceptng me in the Ecclesia of Women group.
Peace! I have posted some three pictures of one event with my Secular Carmelites community in Zamboanga as we commemorate the Feast of St. John of the Cross. We usually share something to indigent children and families in the community where our 4 hermitages are located. I will be sharing more pictures on my peacebuilding initiatives with the military next time.
All the best for now. God bless you on this wonderful work for Ecclesia of Women of Asia.
Journeying in prayer with you and the Asian women,
I'll take mine to Thailand. That's my arpilleras (made by me) when I was facilitated trauma healing (most of them are women) for different community. some of them are disaster victim (Aceh Tsunami, Yogya earth quake, Porong Flooding), urban poor communities, drugs user and HIV/AIDS, and social activist.
i am still here in Chicago. Was given a year of extension for my study leave to write my paper. Glad of this opportunity. I am dome with course work and defended my proposal. Hope to finish the research by September so I can organize my thoughts for writing.
What about you? Are you done? Great job... yes will post some of my articles one of these days
Thanks Andrea for the invitation. I have accepted it two or three days ago but I could not find it here. May be I was not able to save it. It was a long message that I wrote there. You are always doing something beautiful for Eclessia.
Great work Andrea..
I hope to find good articles here. We recently had a small and interesting group discussion at our Singapore Pastoral Institute on Mulieris Dignitatem as it is the 20th anniversary of the document. It is amazing how we grow in understanding as we share our perspectives. Perhaps we can do something similar here? Shalom!
