CE-Net: Learn more about Education for Ministry (EfM)
July 30, 6 p.m.
via Zoom

Have you ever considered participating in Education for Ministry (EfM)? Do you have questions or want to learn more about the scope and sequence of the program? On Thursday, July 30 at 6 p.m. the Christian Education Network (CE-Net) will host an online session dedicated to Education for Ministry (EfM). The Episcopal Church believes that all baptized persons are called to ministry. While the scope of ministry differs from person to person it is all grounded in our baptismal promises. EfM is an education program of "study, prayer and reflection", that is dedicated to helping people live out their ministry. Cindy Jordan, Diocesan EfM Coordinator, will provide a brief overview of the program and will respond to questions. Click here to register for this July 30 Zoom event. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Bishop's Lectio Divina Bible Study
August 10, 17, 24 & 31, 7 to 8:30 p.m.
via Zoom

Bishop Susan would like to invite anyone in the Diocese of Southern Virginia who is interested to study the Bible with her through Lectio Divina. Lectio Divina is a prayerful way of studying Scripture that, once learned, can be practiced in groups or in solitude. Beginning August 10, we will meet weekly for four weeks to look at Scriptures that will also be helpful in assisting us to navigate through the COVID-19 crisis.  No experience is needed, as Bishop Susan will guide you through the practice of reading (lectio), meditation (meditatio), prayerful response (oratio), and contemplation, or simply resting in God (contemplatio). Beginning at 7 p.m., these meetings will last for 90 minutes. Each meeting is limited to 50 persons, so registration is needed. Register to participate here. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
