Dutch Biblioblogs

I just received a very kind e-mail from Jan Pieter van de Giessen who has been watching the positive and negative reactions on the blogs regarding my postings about what we are going to do about the gender gap. This became the starting point for some Dutch biblical bloggers who write only in Dutch to notice that there is a "gap" for Biblioblogs written in non-English languages. So they have just created BiblioblogNED to represent Dutch voices. Jan also noted that this collection of voices is different from other lists because it does not make distinctions between male and female bloggers or the churches from which they come.

This is an example of a positive initiative that was sparked by our heated discussion. And it is a reminder that the community we are writing to on our blogs is international. I don't read Dutch, but I will link to this in my blog roll for those readers who do read Dutch!

Thanks Jan for sending this to me.

April, the Missional Tribe is starting a year-long exploration of gender and faith. They are looking for writers. The stories will eventually become Volume Two of the Wikiklesia Project (www.wikiklesia.org).
