Want to Get an In-depth Understanding of Your Christian Faith and Tradition?
Education for Ministry (EfM) is a training program of the Episcopal Church which helps people, especially lay leaders and ministers, to
- deepen their spirituality through an effective theological reflection process and to
- bridge the gap between understanding the Bible and dealing with the issues of everyday life.
Each session includes prayer, discussion, and reflection according to a Theological Reflection (TR) process, and may also allow time for refreshments and socializing before or after the class. Reading assignments prepare participants for each session.
Beginning in early September, 2014, St. Mary’s and St. Elizabeth’s will join to offer a year-long class of this four year program for members of their congregations. Participants must be willing to commit to an academic year of training (36 sessions of about 2.5 to 3 hours each). A free session can be given ahead of time for prospective members to see if this is “your cup of tea.” To the degree possible, dates and times of sessions as well as class location will be scheduled after the class is organized to meet the needs of the participants.
Online information is available at http://theology.sewanee.edu/academics/education-for-ministry/.
