Central decisions made at the 2006 General Convention of the Episcopal Church and their implications for the future mission will be examined in a week-long course titled "Making a Home for Difference: Implications for Mission from the General Convention of 2006," at Church Divinity School of the Pacific (CDSP.)
The July 31 - August 4 course, part of the seminary’s Center for Anglican Learning and Leadership (CALL) summer session, will be taught by Donn Morgan, president and dean of CDSP; the Rev. Dr. Katherine Lehman, rector, St. Bede’s, Menlo Park, California; the Rev. Jerry Drino, San Jose, California; and the Rev. Dr. David Gortner, assistant professor of Pastoral Theology and CALL director.
Beginning and ending with the church’s mission, questions of identity, resources, context and ministry will be explored —- what the church is, what it cares about, where it wants to go, and how it thinks it can get there. Topics including leadership, liturgy, education and formation, financial realities, multicultural issues, sexuality, and the Anglican Communion will also be discussed.
Classes will run 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., in the newly renovated Easton Hall Conference Center, on the CDSP campus, 2451 Ridge Road, Berkeley, California.
Participants may earn three continuing education units per course. No academic credit will be awarded. Course tuition is $295. Housing and meal plans are available.
