I was honored this week to have an article published by Georgetown University’s Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs. The piece, entitled “The Blogosphere as Mission Field: Catholic Women on the Web Transform What Women’s Leadership Means” ran Monday in the Berkley Forum.
To give you a flavor of my comments, here is a small sampling:
Collaboration, a service orientation and the willingness to walk alongside others are each critical elements of building an online presence in today’s wired world. The social media have forever changed one-dimensional forms of communication into a dialogue that is ever shifting and evolving. Catholic women around the world comprehend that these same elements can and must be applied effectively to the New Evangelization. They are rising up in record numbers and claiming their unique and worthy role and sharing their voices with impact.
Included in the article are comments from several remarkable women:
- Jennifer Fulwiler
- Elizabeth Scalia
- Sister Margaret Kerry, FSP
- Kelly Wahlquist
- Pat Gohn
- Sister Anne Flanagan, F.S.P.
When people ask me what I “do” and who I work with, I may just begin handing them this article. What a blessing!
