Windy City

The next few weeks hold lots of travel. Next stop: Chicago for the American Society of Church History annual meeting. It will be my first time to attend that gathering. I’ll tweet some impressions and anything notable I hear. I’m looking forward to some interesting papers and conversations.

I’ll also be meeting up with and presenting together on a panel with three other women who also study and write about Baptist life and gender. More about Betsy Flowers, Karen Seat and Susan Shaw in the next post on Saturday.

Here is the program announcement about our panel:

Conflict and Compromise: Reappraising the History of Gender in Southern Baptist Battles

Saturday, January 7, 2012: 9:00 AM-11:00 AM

Westin Chicago River North, Promenade Ballroom B

Chair: Seth A. Dowland, Pacific Lutheran University


The Christian Woman versus Woman’s Lib: Southern Baptists, Women, and 1970s Evangelical Culture
Elizabeth Flowers, Texas Christian University

Conflict and Contradiction: Southern Baptists and Engagement with Feminism
Susan M. Shaw, Oregon State University

(Sub)mission: How Clergywomen Re-imagine Southern Baptist Identity and Reinterpret Schism
Eileen R. Campbell-Reed, Luther Seminary

The Politics of Southern Baptist Complementarianism
Karen K. Seat, University of Arizona

Comment: Sarah Ruble, Gustavus Adolphus College

5:00 PM This just in: Associated Baptist Press released a story today about a new Bible Commentary BY and FOR Complementarians (those who believe “biblical womanhood” means submission of wives to husbands and no spiritual authority by men over women). The panel on Saturday will offer historical analysis on this movement in Baptist life over the last four decades.

#backtoschool means so many things. God’s mercy on every child who struggles with these questions.
  • What a beautiful day to start the fall teaching term!
#TeachingSelfie #EveningClass
#WishMeLuck @unionseminary #BackToSchool #BackToSeminary
  • What a full day it has been! The first day of orientation is done. I’m delighted to meet the incoming students and imagine our work together this year in pastoral theology and care as well as the death, dying, and bereavement course next spring. It is also joyful to meet colleagues in the work of theological education. And this evening on a walk I even spotted @alexisinnyc having dinner with her family along Broadway. [This is the part where you break into it’s a small world after all.] . 
many things will no doubt “pull me up short” in the days ahead. And you can read about my first experience of that at my blog. Today’s #Episode39 of @threeminuteministrymentor is about learning from the moments that happen when we don’t know how to respond. From this kind of pain can come truly transformed learning. #backtoschool #BackToSeminary #3MMM #3MinuteMinistryMentor #TheologicalEducation #Seminary #SeminaryLife #MinistryLife #PulledUpShort #Learning
  • Last gasp of #summer at the #mnstatefair 😎🤩😍
  • Advanced my summer writing projects and turned in one more this week. The grading is all finished and posted. New haircut yesterday. Now I have one more decision to make… Which T-shirt should I buy? ‘Cause Orientation is next week and I wanna look sharp. 😎

#VisitingProfessor #UTSNYC (Translation: This year I‘ll be a visiting assoc. professor of pastoral theology at Union Theological Seminary, New York.)
