I just found this great site. It looks to be Antiochian Orthodox in origin, but of course, pan-Orthodox in relevance. Anyway, this is not the purpose of this post. I would like to ask for your help. We (Juliana and I) are organizing an Orthodox Women's Retreat for February 2007. Don't laugh! We had to book the speaker early!! (can you guess who this is? have you already heard? are you beside yourself with excitement? I am). The nature of the aid I need from all of you strong, intelligent, thoughtful women is this: what would you like to hear our speaker speak about? What is on your mind? What issues are pressing and relevent to modern Orthodox women? And please nothing on motherhood or marriage. Not that we're all such amazing wives an mothers already, but there are already so many such resources available, and we would like something big and shattering and epiphanal (is that a word?). Whether or not this is possible remains to be seen. All my ideas just sounded so pedantic; I thought I'd throw the challenge out to y'all:) Anyway, if you could, please give it some prayerful thought; this is important. I will keep checking back here periodically to see what jewels you've posted. Thanks ladies!
