Immigration Education & Dialogue for Clergy and Lay Leaders

ERM Clergy Day 151007.jpg

The session will start with an overview of the U.S. immigration system, common immigration myths and concerns, and a description of what immigration reform could look like.  Many U.S.-born Americans are not well versed on the U.S. immigration system; hence, it’s important to cover this “head” knowledge before engaging in dialogue to get into the heart of the matter.

Next, the session will bring people together in small groups to engage in guided dialogue about immigration.   The dialogue session uses a short film about immigrant journeys and challenges and will include community members who can share their immigration experience as well as their experience working with immigrant communities.


Please register by May 7. Registration is $10 and includes lunch; a donation will be taken to support El Refugio and Just Faith Ministries in their work with immigrants.

Four contact hours will be awarded for Clergy Continuing Education.

The Art of Teaching Spiritual Discernment

  • DuBose Conference Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
unnamed (4).jpg

The Beecken Center of the School of Theology is proud to once again partner with Listening Hearts Ministries to offer this intensive, four-day retreat at the DuBose Conference Center. Participants will learn to facilitate and mentor spiritual discernment groups using the Listening Hearts approach. The retreat will include communal meditation activities; workshops that teach the practical aspects of teaching spiritual discernment; and a series of discernment sessions, each of which is followed by a reflective review to gain insight into the necessary elements which bring forth fruitful discernment.

Screen Shot 2018-11-05 at 9.44.24 AM.png

This retreat is geared to spiritually mature leaders of all ages who are committed to the principles set forth in Listening Hearts. It affords each participant the opportunity to enter into discernment in relation to his or her own life while also learning to train and mentor discernment groups. Participants will work in small groups, each with its own mentor. Silence, song, imaginative engagement with Scripture, creative meditation activities, and contemplative sharing of reflections combine to draw each group into the flow of the Spirit. The training includes a series of discernment sessions, each followed by a reflective review to gain insight into what contributes to fruitful discernment in community. Workshops lay out the practical aspects of training discerners.

Additionally, the program has an “at home” component: for five weeks prior to the retreat (the weeks of Feb. 3, 10, 17, 24, and March 3) participants will reflect on short readings, engage in creative meditation exercises, and share reflections and a short biographical write-up with their group. The assignments will require an average of two hours of work per week, which can usually be broken into several sections. In the final week each participant will prepare a one-page summary of an issue with which they are wrestling.


The Listening Hearts retreat can count as Alternate Mentor Training for Education for Ministry (EfM) mentors. Requirements for Alternate Mentor Training include having completed two Foundations Trainings, being “Formation ready,” not having completed another Alternate Training within the last three trainings, and not needing to go back to Foundations after three Formations. Contact Elsa Bakkum, EfM Associate Director for Training, at esbakkum@sewanee.edu for Alternate Training credit.


Tuition: $750
Includes five weeks of at-home preparation (about two hours of work per week during the weeks of Feb. 3, 10, 17, 24, and March 3).

Lodging not included. Lodging reservations may be made directly with the DuBose Conference Center using this form.

Registration closes Jan. 23, 2019.

Dismantling Racism training seeks to increase "racial understanding, healing and reconciliation." It is offered several times throughout the year and is required for all parish clergy and all lay leaders, including vestry members.  Trainings are developed by the Diocese of Atlanta Beloved Community: Commission for Dismantling Racism. 

The training was adjusted in 2012 to "reflect the fruit of several conversations that the commission has conducted," said Dr. Catherine Meeks of Riverdale, commission chair. "We have wanted to reframe the training in a way that makes the experience a part of the ongoing spiritual formation of the participants," she said.

Training, required of all clergy and lay leaders, runs for a single day from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Although there is no charge to take the training, pre-registration is requested no later than one week in advance.

For information on the trainings and how to register, contact Mary Job, mjob@episcopalatlanta.org.

What:

Why:

You have an opportunity to BE the difference for LGBTQ+ persons who experience alienation, hate, discrimination by cultivating a parish and larger church environment that is safe for all children and youth, including those who are LGBTQ+ so that they can live out their diversity of gender identities and expressions.
