Mobilizing the Church for Social Change

Sr. Pamela Clare Magers, CSF

March 26 – May 18, 2012

Registration Deadline: March 22, 2012

This course will focus on Social Ministry in the congregation, in diocesan institutions, and at the Provincial and National level in the Episcopal Church—both social ministry as compassionate service that meets the needs of individuals and families and social ministry as social justice advocacy that aims at changing the system. We will find out what the challenges are for the Church, how the Church has engaged those challenges, and how the Church might be called to be in the world in new ways, especially in these days of financial and budgetary crisis for individuals and government at every level. The main project for the course will be an extensive study of the participant’s home congregation which will lead to suggestions for further development of social ministry and the mobilization of our Church’s human resources.

Pamela Clare Magers, CSF (Ph.D. in anthropology, University of Arizona) is a member of the Community of St. Francis and is on the faculty of the School for Deacons in the Diocese of California.

This course qualifies for the Advanced Anglican Series in the area of Ministry/Ethics. 2 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are available.
