I'd love to learn more about women (past and present) who have been influential in our world. People such as Josephine Baker, Amy Carmichael, the women of the Sufferage movement and the Abolition movement, etc. Of course I want to learn about men as well, but I love reading about women that allowed themselves to be used by the Lord. And as we learn about these women, we can be inspired and encouraged so we can take their examples into our lives and ministries (that's an idea - discussing the practical and real ways we can take what we learn from them).

What do ya think?

I really enjoyed reading about the girl who won the contest and went on the trip to Africa. I would like to see more of the amazing stories of what young women are doing today. Where they came from and what inspired them to do what they are doing now.

I'd love some Advent-themed posts as we enter this season of waiting and anticipation. I'm always in need of reminders not to rush through Advent to Christmas. What might we read and think about together to encourage us to savor the gift of waiting as we prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ?

Also, how do we avoid getting caught up in the commercialism/ commercialization of Christmas? How, if at all, does our observance of Advent and our celebration of Christmas distinguish us from the world? Should Christians celebrate differently?

I agree with Mandy. I think it would be meaningful to discuss different aspects of Advent and how it applies to each of us currently. And, I love the idea of "making Christmas simple". How do we celebrate differently...good stuff.

Is it too late to cash in my chips for a prize?

I'd like the opportunity once a week to discuss current events . . . how we are being affected by what's going on and what we're doing to make a difference.

I get the bulk of my news fix from the Daily Show and the Colbert Report. So while I laugh at what's going on, I'd like the opportunity to discuss it.

. . . just a thought.
