Anglican Colloquium I
The overall purpose of the Colloquium series in the Anglican Studies curriculum is to supplement the M.Div. curriculum with topics of importance in the preparation of women and men for service to God in and through the Episcopal Church. It offers Episcopal students an opportunity to engage in reflection and discernment on their experience of formation for religious leadership, lay and ordained, providing an opportunity to integrate varied theological disciplines.
In the fall of junior year, the colloquium focuses on vocational discernment and on the formation of community in seminary. Through exploration of the Berkeley Rule of Life, Scripture, the Book of Common Prayer, and selected weekly readings, students will reflect on their life together in community and their relationships with God, the church, and one another.
