Our very first conference emerged from the hardwork of Susan Olson. Through the support of The Louisville Institute, young clergy women who had previously only connected through an underground password-protected blog gathered the Cathedral College of Preachers in Washington, DC. On August 6-10, 2007, these young clergy women were encouraged to preach the good news by Anna Carter Florence. Using inspiration from her recent book Preaching as Testimony, the Rev. Dr. Carter Florence worked with small preach ing groups. Following the format familiar to the the Cathedral College, participants were invited to preach two sermons over the week in these...

In 2008, we returned to the Cathedral College of Preachers in Washington, DC to exlore our preaching. On August 5-9, 2008, we made our way to our nation's capital to be inspired by The Rev. Dr. Ruthanna Hooke, of Virginia Theological Seminary. As an ecumenical body, we were grateful to welcome an Anglican voice like the Rev. Hooke. We knew that we could count on an ecumenical heart from her studies at Yale Dvinity School. The Rev. Hooke offered this invitation toward embodying the sermon. The depths of Scripture call for preachers to meet Scripture from their own depths. This... Continue reading

Sabbath has been called “the most radical sociopolitical invention of the past four thousand years.” It’s also one of the most countercultural spiritual practices we can undertake in our 24/7 world. We will explore the good, the bad and the holy of Sabbath-keeping: its biblical foundations, its theological underpinnings and its practical challenges and joys. Our discussion will have a particular eye toward the issues clergy face, particularly young clergy women, when trying to carve out time for the "delight" of Sabbath, and explore the role of technology in our vocations and how it helps and hinders Sabbath. Come for... Continue reading

In 2010, the previous home of our 2007 and 2008 Conferences, the Cathedral College of Preachers in Washington, DC, sadly closed. TYCWP began to dream about what a conference designed from the ground up by and for young clergy women would look like. To do so, TYCWP partnered with the Center for Congregational Health and the Candler School of Theology at Emory University. On June 27-30, 2010, we invited our clergy sisters to Atlanta with this invitation. Need a chance to learn and connect with young clergy women like yourself? Want the chance to re-examine, revitalize, and recharge with others... Continue reading

In 2011, we were eager to roll up our sleeves and host our second conference by ourselves -- our fourth conference overall. From August 8-11, 2011, we were welcomed by Duke Divinity School in Durham, North Carolina to seek rest and renewal, refreshment and re-connecting with God. Our time was led by the Reverend Winnie Varghese, a leader in the Episcopal Church's clergy wellness program. We nurtured our spirits. We tried new prayer practices. We walked in the lovely Duke Gardens. We engaged our minds with presentations and group discussions. As always, we connected with old friends and discover new... Continue reading

I totally love this interview! What a great idea to do this interviews and hear a bit about the artist's life--That image of the family painting the hand of the dying man will stay with me forever. This was fascinating.
Oh wow, I didn't even realize I was signed into that organizational account, and I can't figure out how to re-sign in as myself. That last comment was from Katherine!

What a wonderful trip! I'm feeling a little left out, though. Sniff, sniff.
