School of Ministry 2021: You are invited if you…

Courage for ministry in our world today
It takes courage to climb mountains and leap deep chasms.
It also takes courage to work in ministry into an unknown future of church and world. It takes courage to face our lives of ministry day after day with all that they bring. It takes courage to be aware of our strengths and challenges and inner world and keep going into the ministries God calls us to.
Our School of Ministry this year aims to help us grow a spirituality of courage, and expand our repertoire of courageous behaviour. Rev Dr Sean Gilbert will explore what courage means for us in ministry and in our personal lives.
- Courage 1: Of the heart, from the heart: spiritual affections and the practice of Christian ministry
- Courage 2: The Courage to Be: humility and graciousness revisited
- Courage 3: The Courage to Create: expressive acts of justice and compassion
- Courage 4: The Courage to Die: decentring in life and faith
Workshops will drill down to practicalities for harnessing internal, everyday and future-facing courage. Topics include the courage for everyday, courage grief & trauma, Courage race & culture, Courage and future church, Courage and facing the world within, and others.
Together we will meet and eat, talk and pray, and be prepared with fresh courage for the ministries in which we engage.
The School of Ministry offers an annual opportunity to share with colleagues in ministry. It provides a strong basis for each minister’s Continuing Education program.
