Registration is open for Education for Ministry sessions to begin in September

Education for Ministry (EfM) a four-year program of course in scripture, theology and church history sponsored by the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, will be offered in about 20 congregations around the diocese, according to Gary Leonard, diocesan EfM coordinator.

EfM is taught in small-group settings, usually from September to May. In addition to academic studies, participants explore their personal beliefs and effective practice of their faith.

"During these uncertain times with COVID-19 disrupting our lives and the struggle to end racial inequality," Leonard wrote in a course invitation, "you may have been looking for new ways to deepen your faith or for a way to challenge old ways of thinking so that you can start putting your faith into action in challenging new and dramatic ways."

During a recent graduation service for EfM graduates, Bishop John Harvey Taylor remarked that the program helps "to address the disconnect in basic biblical understanding between those who preach and those who hear." Making that connection, he added, is vital to forming effecting lay leaders in the church.

Each EfM session includes prayer, worship, theological reflection and discussions on the book readings. Through the course of the four years EfM works from a common lesson book that will cover the following themes:

Year A: Living faithfully in your world
Year B: Living faithfully in a multicultural world
Year C: Living as a spiritually mature Christian
Year D: Living into the journey with God

"EfM uses a wide variety of sources to challenge you and to deepen your faith," says Leonard. "If you are a past graduate of EfM, this is an entirely new program compared to what you experienced in the past. Graduates of EfM are invited to enroll in any year they wish to take."

To learn more about EfM, visit the Sewanee website here. For more information about local EfM sessions, contact Leonard at [email protected]. Registration deadline for the coming program year is Aug. 31; some groups fill up fast.

GFS-LA is looking for California-themed pins to share at National Assembly

A group of Girls Friendly Society members and leaders will travel to Boston during the first week of August for the GFS National Assembly. According to GFS-Los Angeles President Margaret Nolde, one of the customs at National Assembly is for each delegation to bring trading pins that represent their locality. "It occurred to me that maybe some people have pins gathering dust in drawers," said Nolde, "and they might be willing to donate so the members can share a bit of California with other GFS members while on the East Coast.

The pins can represent California in any way – sports teams, national parks, cities, the Disneyland Resort or other local theme parks and attractions, schools, organizations, the California grizzly bear, the state flag, the state flower (California golden poppies), etc.

Nolde asks that anyone who has such pins to spare and who would like to donate them to the GFS delegation mail them to her at St. John the Divine Church, 183 E Bay Street, Costa Mesa, CA 92627. The deadline to receive the pins is July 25.

For more information, contact Nolde at [email protected].

From the wider church
Global Anglican Communion given greater voice in choosing future Archbishops of Canterbury

[Anglican Communion News Service - July 12, 2022] Until now the wider worldwide Anglican Communion, outside of England, has been represented by just one of the 16 members of the Crown Nominations Commission (CNC) for the See of Canterbury.

But under changes to the Standing Orders of the General Synod formally approved today, there will now be five representatives of other churches of the Anglican Communion – one each from Africa; the Americas; Middle East and Asia; Oceania and Europe.

The new rules will also ensure the inclusion of laity and clergy as well as bishops; a balance of men and women and that at least half of the five will be of Global Majority heritage.

All diocesan bishops of the Church of England, including the archbishops, are appointed by Her Majesty the Queen following a nomination by the Crown Nominations Commission for the see.
