Happy 5th Birthday RevGalBlogPals!

Today we celebrate the birthday of the RevGalBlogPals webring! Check out the story of the beginnings of this group on today's post by Songbird.

I was fortunate to be among the "founding mothers" of the group. I was a very newbie blogger who had just found St. Casserole's blog and was looking for others like it.

Who would have thought it would grow to over 300 members and that I would dust off my attorney hat to create a non-profit organization for the group? Who would have thought that my recipe for the Texas Chocolate Sheet Cake would morph into the RevGals Solidarity Cake?

If you haven't checked them out, this is the perfect time to do so. The webring's blog has regular features that are unique in the blogosphere--especially Ask The Matriarchs (where newly minted pastors can ask questions to a group of experienced women pastors) and the every popular Saturday Preacher Party which allows pastors to exchange their sermon ideas, based on the revised common lectionary, for the next day's services.

Happy, happy birthday to all the RevGals and Pals!
