Good to meet each of you! I am having fun with they little critters over here on my left - the whole thing is so new to me! How in the world do you retrieve a "private message"? Haven't figured that one out yet, but have one to read.
EFM - okay, will try. EFM stands for Education for Ministry and is a worldwide program of theological education for NON clergy - although often clergy do take the course
The first year is OT, second NT, third early church history (CE to 1700), and fourth year modern church theology in light of legal/ethical/and moral points of view (fitting it all together!) or in other words developing your own systematic theology. It is sponsored by the School of Theology/Sewanee University, Sewannee, TN. Basically it is the "core course" taken by Priest for lay people. Now - aren't you sorry you asked! ROFL
Thank you for the warm welcome - I have so much to learn in navigating this place! I know I will learn a lot from each of you and am blessed to have 'stumbled upon' ya'll
Have a great day!
