In a stunning turn of events, I have mostly good news to share this week because I feel like we all need it. First though, let’s get the unpleasant and ridiculous out of the way.
“Called by God.” There are few vocations in life to which we say people are divinely challenged, led, or directed. But as clergy, we find ourselves in that unusual category.
We each experience it in a different way. Some as children. Some later in life. Some in very direct, obvious, in-your-face moments. Some are quiet whisperings of the Spirit that guide us gently into serving the church, synagogue, fellowship, congregation, or whatever our body of faith might be called.
However we come, serving our flock, serving our God, is what we do.
It’s Open Thread time! For some of you it might be your Friday, if you have tomorrow off for Good Friday. So in the spirit of that, I present you with Rebecca Black’s “Friday”! Read More Fun Fun Fun Open Thread
What’s up, readers? How were your weekends? Did you catch the Oscars? In the spirit of the shiny, gold, bald man, today I want to know the movie you think was robbed of the little statuette more than any other. Ready, set, go!
We’re out for tonight, but feel free to hang out in the comments and in the forums (the link is right over there to your right.) Keep your suggestions for Middlemarch Madness coming, Bee and Sara B. are working on a post for Wednesday afternoon that will list all the potential heroines broken down by genre.

Ned?! Ned Ryerson?! Iiiit’s Groundhog Day!
In the spirit of the day (well, the movie, which is superior to the day) today’s poll is: If you could pick one day to live over and over, theoretically the best day of your life, would you do it? If your answer is yes, you can tell us about the day if you want.
My answer is probably no, not if I was going to be aware that I was reliving it because I think it would get boring. Variety being the spice of life and all that. Most good experiences is usually good because it signifies the beginning of something, i.e. getting a great promotion at work. So I wouldn’t want to experience one good event without being able to experience everything that was going to come after.
What about you, Peresphoneers?
Oh, and watch out for that first step, it’s a doozy!
We’ve been in a tizzy at the Persephone offices and we’ve all slacked on our ladyghost duties this week. I’m here to promise we’ll all be back next week and fully on our game. In the meantime, I made a lazy blogger post of You Tube videos on the other side of the cut. Persephone bitches love videos. Read More Ladyghosts: We Stink This Week
