Emmaus Journey Inquiry Sessions Today at 9.15 am
The Emmaus Journey, a roundtable for those inquiring about faith and church, seeking baptism, or confirmation/reception into the Episcopal Church concludes today in Davies Hall. The journey is from where you are to where your questions and the grace of God lead you. The invitation is to travel the road together in hope of glimpsing Jesus in breaking open the scriptures, leading to communion with him at the table where he breaks bread. The Rev. Dan Benedict and John Condrey serve as conveners. More information may be obtained by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling Dan Benedict at 808.489.4004.
EfM – Information Session for 2013/2014 Class
EDUCATION for MINISTRY, a 4-year adult self-study extension program offered by the School of Theology, University of the South, will continue to be offered at the Cathedral for the 2013/2014 academic year. Every baptized person is called to ministry – the EDUCATION for MINISTRY (EfM) program provides people with an educational basis to carry out that ministry. An introductory session will be held on Sunday, May 19 at 12:30 for those interested in knowing more about this curriculum and who want to discuss next steps, as well as meet and talk with this year’s students. This session will be held in the Von Holt Room at the Cathedral of St. Andrew.
Starting time for next year’s class will late September/early October. New source text material is being introduced for all four years with the next academic year. For more in-depth information about the program please visit Sewanee.edu/EFM. For questions about forming the 2013/2014 class, please email questions to email@example.com.
Graduates of EfM (those who have already completed all four years in a prior version of EfM) who wish to participate again and use the NEW, REVISED curriculum may enroll in individual years out of sequence. Standard fees apply; there is no discount since the re-enrollee will need to be provided with the new texts. The format of worship, study, reflection remains the same. Note: This does not apply to new participants who, as always, must begin the program in Year One and proceed sequentially through the four years.

Quest for an Earth Spirituality
Come, join us in a conversation with the late Thomas Berry (Jesuit priest, cultural historian and eco-theologian) to explore how Christian spirituality might be reconceived to include a planetary spirituality? When & Where?: Last session May 15. BYM (Bring your meal.) after Evensong from 6:15-7:45 pm in the 2nd Floor Conference Room The focus: How does climate change call us to expand our understandings of prayer, liturgy and baptismal living that includes communion with a sacred planet? How has the Judeo-Christian matrix served as the context for consumption rather than communion with a sacred universe? Convener: Dan Benedict, Ecumenical Associate. Call Dan at 808.489.4004 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Resources: Handouts, weblinks, and guided conversation will be provided to aid and inform our conversation.
