CCS Principal Maylanne Maybee will be teaching a seven week online course being offered through CALL – Center for Anglican Learning and Leadership – a continuing education program of the Church Divinity School of the Pacific, based in Berkeley, California, in partnership with CCS.  Registration is now open.

Images of Diakonia – Interpreting the Sacred in Church and World” is based on the images made popular by Deaconess Louise Williams in her keynote address to DOTAC in Winnipeg in 2002.  They are a frequent motif for diaconal formation at CCS: towel and basin, table waiter, story teller, door keeper, light bearer.  Each image will be the starting point for focusing on an area of competency for diaconal ministry, such as understanding poverty and privilege, creating community, acting for justice, ministering from the margins, inviting hope and possibility.

diaconal symbols of towel, bowl, and candleThe course will lead to two Continuing Education Units and is open to participants from the US and Canada, from The Anglican Church of Canada and The Episcopal Church.  It is suitable for anyone in discernment or formation for the diaconate, or for anyone committed to lifelong learning as deacons, mentors, or co-workers.

“Images of Diakonia” runs from January 16 to March 6, 2017 for a tuition of $220 USD.
