Education for Ministry (EfM) 2015/2016

Education for Ministry (EfM)

Why Doubt Can Be a Gift!

What is your imagery of God, your imagery of worship, your imagery of relationship with Mystery and with your fellow man?   How do you find the words to express these imageries?  How do these imageries shape your unique story?  How does your story weave into the story of the people of God?

These questions  are at the heart of the Education for Ministry seminar. Using Scripture, Tradition, Reason/Revelation, we explore–and sometimes challenge–our understandings and relationships with our faith, church, and community.  We  explore the “fit” of our heritage and stories with our 21st-century world.

Questions are not always doubt, but the Creator Mystery calling us into deeper relationship.  EfM will not tell us WHAT to believe, but will give us tools for expression and dialogue–with each other and with God.  And, to borrow a phrase–“LOVE always listens!”
