Thoughtful people are asking….What is EfM and why should I consider joining?
Short answer: EfM is the acronym for Education for Ministry, a distance learning program of the Episcopal Seminary in Sewanee, TN.
It is a four year program of study, group reflection/discussion, worship, Christian community and spiritual friendship. More details available at www.efm.sewanee.edu.
Why should I consider joining? Have you ever read a book that really engaged you and made you think? Or, watched a movie or heard a talk show or had a conversation that seemed to challenge your view of life or your faith? Have you ever opened the Holy Bible but found it too difficult to understand how it could relate to questions raised by life’s big and little questions? Do the current political issues within the church frustrate you and cause you to wonder if the church has ever before gone through such turmoil? Did you come to the Episcopal church from another Christian denomination or another faith and wonder what the Episcopal church “thinks” about this or that? Do you sometimes think that you are the only one who struggles to understand your faith? Do you love the thoughtful sermons preached every Sunday at St. Peter’s but wish the conversation could continue? If you find yourself answering yes to any of these questions you might be a good candidate for EfM. More
