The Winter 2019 edition of the Episcopal Teacher is now available. It is a special edition for several reasons. First, it focuses on the Center for the Ministry of Teaching (CMT) at the Seminary. A history of CMT, written by George Kroupa, provides a snapshot of the effort undertaken to revive Christian education in Episcopal parishes.
Second, there are numerous articles on educators and theologians who greatly influenced and guided our approach to Christian formation. They include Maria Harris, who published Fashion Me a People: Curriculum in the Church; John Westerhoff, who wrote Will Our Children Have Faith?; and gifted teacher and educator, Verna Dozier, who helped create the Episcopal Children’s Curriculum. Other articles feature vignettes of numerous colleagues, partners, and collaborators who contributed to the work of the CMT. They include Jerome Berryman, Anthony Guillen, Mary Hess, and Kyle Oliver, among others.
The edition concludes with an article by Lisa Kimball, associate dean for Lifelong Learning (LLL). She describes how LLL will build on the legacy of the past and continue the work of CMT to teach Christians how to make disciples and pass their faith on to those they love and the world at large.
This is the last printed edition of Episcopal Teacher. Visit their new website, EpiscopalTeacher.org to view featured articles from the past five years as well as new reports on what is happening with the Lifelong Learning Team.
