Sitting down with friends over a cup of tea isn’t something most people can do in this time of social distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But women around the world will have the opportunity to do this virtually with the launch of the Converge Women’s Bridge Network’s new podcast — T Time: Spiritual conversations For, With & About women.

The podcast is hosted by Dr. Twanna Henderson, first lady and executive minister of Church Ministries at New Beginnings Church in Matthews, North Carolina. She is also the national director of the Bridge Network.

Henderson says the goal of the podcast is to help “women feel empowered to be their best selves based on who God says that they are.”

Each episode of T Time will feature a special guest and true inspirational stories from women and about women. Whether you’re a working professional, serving in ministry, a stay-at-home mom or an empty nester, there’s something in this podcast for you.

The first two episodes of T Time are available now at converge.org/t-time. Starting in June, a new episode will be released first Wednesday of the month at noon EST.

The inaugural episode — Layers of motherhood — is a Mother’s Day special featuring Trina Jenkins, first lady of First Baptist Church of Glenarden in Maryland.

In the second episode — Perfection vs. imperfection: Unveiling the heart of a pastor’s wife — Coletta Smith, of Mission Hills Church in Littleton, Colorado, and a pastor’s wife for over 26 years, shines a light on “what your pastor’s wife wishes you knew about her but didn’t know how to tell you until now.”

“I want the conversations to be like you are sitting down talking to someone that you probably wouldn’t be able to talk to, but you would feel like you actually had the opportunity to talk with them,” Henderson said. “So almost like an audio talk show, where you feel this real connection with somebody. You may not be in a position or a location to have a conversation with them, but you feel like you just did.”

The T Time podcast is the latest way that the Bridge Network is committed to connecting and supporting women across Converge’s 11 districts as they serve in various roles in the church.

Through the podcast, coaching, events and retreats, the Bridge Network can help you get connected with other women who will help you develop healthy rhythms in your life.
