UNCSW 2010: Welcome to the UN CSW

November 10, 2014

Despite massive snow fall across the eastern seaboard, all 12 Episcopal Young Adult Delegates have safely arrived in New York City for the 54th United Nations Commission on the Status of women. Joining with over 8,000 other registered NGO representatives, these young adults are setting out on a journey of exploration, expansion, and advocacy. They […]

Finding the Young Adults in the Church (hint: we’re right here)

November 10, 2014

By Lauren Woody As the Diocesan Coordinator for Young Adult Ministries in the Diocese of Atlanta, I advocate for a group (young adults) that I think is largely forgotten and misunderstood in the church world. As youth we are put out in the spotlight and then just expected to quietly integrate into becoming an “adult” […]

UNCSW 2010: Called to Listen

November 10, 2014

by P’tricia Egbert, Diocese of Kentucky As I gathered with other young people today, my heart was warmed with the silence of contemplation. As our sisters and brothers shared their interpretations of our text from Exodus, others sat and actually listened, taking in each other’s words. This communal listening filled me with hope about the […]

UNCSW 2010: Know My Heart

November 10, 2014

by Jasmine Bostock, Diocese of Hawaii Starting the day this morning, I was filled with anticipation of what the day would bring. Will I hear stories? Will I tell them? Will I be brave enough to introduce myself to someone and start a conversation? Will I be overcome with information? Our day started at 5AM, […]

UNCSW 2010: Equality Re-imagined

November 10, 2014

by Karen Longenecker, Diocese of San Diego Coming back to UNCSW this year has already proved to be a profound and moving experience, and its only Monday. I was here last year and while I keep trying not to compare, it is rather inevitable and I find myself being so delighted with different opportunities this […]

UNCSW 2010: A Place and a Voice

November 10, 2014

by Garrett Braaf, Diocese of Southeast Florida So I arrive in the morning of February 26. As I got settled into my room, a question suddenly hit me like a freight train: WHY IN THE WORLD AM I HERE? A wave of fear and disappointment swept over me as I pondered my answer. I knew […]

UNCSW 2010: My Cup Overflows

November 10, 2014

by Hanna Kang-Brown, Diocese of Los Angeles In NYC, I am surrounded by a cacophony of noise and movement. Buildings filled with people rise on all sides of the street. People rush to and fro. Cars are merging, and trucks are honking. I am surrounded by people with countless agendas, and it feels easy to […]

UNCSW 2010: Darse Cuenta

November 10, 2014

by Karen Longenecker, Diocese of San Diego The last blog I wrote about was rather obscure. I talked about the body and how one day equality will be an erotic experience. I don’t know yet if I totally know what that means but in true divine style, the next day brought more clarity to me. […]

UNCSW 2010: Personal Frustration and Group Gain

November 10, 2014

by Jasmine Bostock, Diocese of Hawaii So, today was one of extreme highs and then extreme lows. In the morning, we met with the Presiding Bishop Katherine Jefferts-Schori. She pretty much has rockstar status for me, a young woman feeling called to ordination in the Episcopal Church. I so appreciated given the time we were […]
