Introduction to Education For Ministry 

Following a briefer than usual worship service on Wednesday, April 24th (at the Paul Mahder Gallery), we will have an opportunity to learn about a way to deepen our understanding and practice of the Christian faith. We will be joined by special guest, The Rev. Kevin M. Goodman, executive director of EfM, Education for Ministry, a four-year Christian Formation program founded and administered through the School of Theology of the University of the South at Sewanee. Through study, prayer, worship, and reflection, EfM seminar groups journey together through scripture, church history, and theology.
A seminar group consists of one or two mentors and up to twelve participants. The group meets up to 36 times during the course of a year. Years 1 & 2 study the Hebrew Scriptures, the Gospels, and the New Testament. Year 3 looks at Church History. Year 4 reads systematic theology, developing and enhancing their own practice.  
Come for the 5:30 service, and Fr. Kevin’s talk will begin around 6 pm.

Rainy Day Readers Bookclub Meeting

The book for discussion is A Year of Biblical Womanhood, How a Liberated Woman Found Herself Sitting on her Roof, Covering Her Head and Calling her Husband "Master" by Rachel Held Evans. The Amazon book review is as follows:  Have you ever wondered what God truly expects of women? Is there really a prescription for biblical womanhood? Does the Bible's idea of womanhood have a place in modern Christianity? New York Times bestselling author Rachel Held Evans embarks on a year-long study of what it means to live by the standards of biblical womanhood.
