Starting Day 2!

Day 2 of the Phenomenal Women’s Summit in Birmingham, Alabama, Friday, August 31, 2012, brought with a greeting from Bishop Teresa Snorton and a prayer by Rev. Lavonia McIntyre, pastor of St. John’s CME Church in Monticello, GA.  Participants were also greeted by Rep. Barbara Boyd, from the 32nd District in Calhoun, Talladega Counties in Alabama.

Bishop Snorton then introduced Mrs. Bobbie Knight, Vice President of Alabama Power, who reflected on the subject of "Women Rock: We Just Do" (see article "Women Rock: We Just Do") Immediately following the talk, Bishop Snorton invited open dialogue between the women and Mrs. Knight.  Bishop Snorton asked then for the audience to call out one word that would describe the experience of her talk today.  Words like “extrodinary”, “dynamic” and of course “She rocks!” (although it was two words).

Changing the workshop: each person will give a 15 to 20 minute sampler for this morning and participants can chose from the full workshops this afternoon.
