Louise, Rachel and Isabelle are three mothers of youngish children training for the priesthood. Louise was ordained deacon in 2010 and Rachel and Isabelle will be ordained in 2011. We have all experienced the highs and the lows of these two callings on our lives and the juggle that is required. Here we hope to develop a resource for women who experience motherhood and want to explore their evolving spirituality. We have created a course that can be implemented by churches who perhaps already run toddler church and parenting courses but want to nurture mothers specifically in their Christian journey. Please email the blog host for more information regarding materials and click on THE FUEL COURSE page for a presentation taking you through the aims and objectives and a sample of the course. A theological rationale will be available soon.
Rachel also blogs at Revising Reform
Whether you seek Spiritual Rehabilitation or just a little Spiritual Replenishment, we hope that this site might be a place where we can feed you and you can feed us as we seek to develop a series of workshops that the church might use to meet women as they 'become' mothers: a time of such rapid transformation.
Our materials can be developed in response to what we discover here and most important of all, our stories can be told.
