In an effort to expand the voices on our blog, we’ve been interviewing Asian American women leaders.  In November 2010, we posted our first “spotlight interview” entry (and we’ve been posting one a month ever since).  Then this past March, we interviewed for and posted our first “shared insights” entry, now also a regular entry on our blog.  I’d now like to propose yet another addition: a “Question” entry.  Let me explain why.

After a lot of listening at the Asian American Equipping Symposium II: “Asian American History – The Lost Coin,” it is time to experience our common Asian American history. We invite you to join us as we travel to important historical sites within Los Angeles. Through guided tours and debriefing sessions, we will learn to connect our stories with the stories of Little Tokyo, Olvera Street, Chinatown, and Koreatown.

In an increasingly virtualizing culture, our communal walk will locate the dislocated memories, culture, and identities as hybrid Asian American people.

Join us for TEE (Theological Education by Experience), a life transforming event of discovery and reflection on what God has been doing around us.  Registration fee for three days of guided tours, educational group sessions, coordinated transportation, and delicious lunches is only $150.  Space is very limited, so we encourage you to register soon!

Hello everyone!

We are looking to expand our blog into new territory by featuring a diversity of voices and faces of evangelical Asian American women in leadership.  With so few Asian American women in leadership, it’s easy to forget that there is more than one way to be an Asian American woman leader, and it’s easy to dismiss oneself as a leader just because you don’t fit into the few models that are clearly visible.

Thus, we are calling all of you to consider helping us to diversify our blog in the following ways: (more…)
