Annual Interfaith Prayer Vigil for Peace

Sunday, Sept 10, 2017,    5 - 7 p.m.  St Paul’s Episcopal Church—900 East 300 South, SLC

We are all too aware that these are very challenging times we live in -  but also times that carry much potential for great transformation.  Many of us have been blessed over the years in our efforts towards Interfaith dialogue and friendship.  We now hold the challenge to take the next step and find ways to unite in our common humanity and pray together - especially for Peace. In a spirit of mutual respect, reverence and awe for the beauties of our varied sacred traditions, we desire to join our hearts, our hopes and our voices across our traditions in this endeavor.  If our vision resonates with yours please come join us! Together we can live the “Miracle”!

With love and gratefulness,
Clare Julian and the All Are One Committee

EFM: Coming this Fall

The Education for Ministry (EFM) program invites participants into small mentored groups that provide a framework for understanding life and shaping actions while deepening Christian faith. Six to twelve participants in each group meet weekly over the course of 36 weeks annually. The entire four-year program includes year one Hebrew Bible; year two New Testament; year three Church History; year four Theology, Ethics and Interfaith Encounter.  A major component of each weekly session is a theological reflection. We have the capacity for three Salt Lake area groups.  So far, two groups will be meeting on Monday evenings, one with Fran Crookston at St. Stephen's and one with Rev. Susan Toone at St. James.  Another group is planning to meet Wednesdays at St. Mark’s.  If you have already started EfM or are thinking of joining, please contact one of the individuals listed below.
