Beginning September 8, 2013
This course is designed to be an in-depth exploration of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. It is appropriate for adults preparing for Holy Baptism, Confirmation, Reception, or Reaffirmation of Baptismal Vows in the Episcopal Church. It is open to anyone who is drawn by Jesus into a deeper encounter with his saving power and presence.
This is not an academic course about Jesus. While it will include theological study of the meaning of Jesus, it is focused primarily on developing a relationship with him and practicing a way of life shaped by that relationship. Thus, participants are asked to engage in practices such as worship, prayer, and service, as well as reading, reflecting, and discussing a set of common texts.
