Education for Ministry
Education for Ministry provides excellent adult education for people who like to read, think big thoughts, and engage in deep conversations with others who have done the same. The cornerstone of EfM is “theological reflection”. Our group does a beautiful job of this intentional process whereby we seek the connections between faith and practice, religion and culture, personal beliefs and actions. In group theological reflection, we search for signs of God’s presence, and look to form greater congruency between what we profess and how we live.
This is a rigorous and gentle process. Our weekly reading informs our theological reflection which informs our daily living which informs our engagement with the tradition which informs our understanding of culture and so it goes. We begin to see patterns. We begin to think theologically. We begin to see traces of the Holy in all that we do, everywhere we go, and all that we are.
Have you been wondering about Tuesday nights?
Want to decode “EfM”?
We will host open meetings of “Education for Ministry” during Lent. If you’re looking for an adult education seminar that calls forth intellect and imagination, this is for you! If you’re seeking to go deeper into Scripture and the “so what” of it all, this is for you. If you’re wishing you had time to think and to connect life and faith, this is for you. If you’re wondering why you’re here, this is for you.
We begin each week with meditative Holy Communion at 5:30. Then we meet in the Gathering Room from 6-8 for conversation, investigation, and theological reflection. Come and see!
Open meetings are: March 12th, 19th, and 26th. The last day to enroll is March 26th. This is a tuition-based program and scholarships are available.
