• What does it mean to develop a personal faith?
  • What does it mean to discern God’s call in your life?
  • What do the Scriptures really say?
  • Is there any new heresy under the sun?
  If you like to learn in community, and if you like good questions better than easy answers, then you may want to check out Education for Ministry.     Here is what the Blue Book for the General Convention of the Episcopal Church had to say about EfM:  

EDUCATION FOR MINISTRY is the premier program for adult Christian education in the Episcopal Church. It fosters theological reflection based on an informed understanding of the Christian tradition, leading to baptismal ministry in the world.  .

  Education for Ministry groups will be registering in July and starting in September.  Kristin Niederberger and Susan Nielsen mentor a group that meets at Good Shepherd from 6:00 to 8:30 pm on Wednesdays, and they would love to answer your questions and tell you more about EfM.  They can also help you contact mentors for groups that meet at different times, and in different places.   If you are interested, please contact Kristin Niederberger (niederbergerfam@gmail.com) or Susan Nielsen (susan@cmitusa.com).  We have a great group and would love to have you join us.  You can also talk to current group members Kim Snodgrass, Pat Muldoon, Stephen Chalmers, and Jason Hedge or graduates Pat White, Analee Lanio, Liz Janney, Mary Lee, Ron Ham, Laura Sawin-Armato, Bev Roggenkamp, Carye Williams, Kathy Potter, Judy Kile, or Nina Edwards.    More information can be found at http://efm.sewanee.edu/.
