                             ministry of post-Katrina recovery and rebuilding at the
                             end of August 2010. In the course of its five years, over
                             60,000 volunteers have:

                             - mucked/gutted 3500 homes
                             - rehabbed/built anew 550 homes

                             and dark moment in our history is indeed a job well
                             done. To give thanks for the work of the past five years,
                             the Lutheran Episcopal Services in Mississippi invite you

                             words! Hello! My name is Cecil Keener. I
                             am the Education for Ministry
                             Coordinator (EfM) for the Episcopal
                             Diocese of San Diego. I am also an EfM
                             mentor at St Paul's Cathedral. Those of
                             us who are not called to the priesthood
                             and yet want to honor our baptismal vows, look for
                             deeper meaning to our lives in an effort to fulfill them.
                             When we say "Here I am; send me" what exactly does
                             that mean? Send me where? To do what? What am I
                             capable of? Where do my talents lie?

                             The University of the South at Sewanee, Tennessee has
                             developed a correspondence course that enables you to
                             delve into those very questions and decide just exactly
                             what God is calling you to do! The course is called
                             Education for Ministry.

                             I invite you to investigate the EFM program. There are
                             seven mentors in our diocese. We are currently planning
                             for next year's sessions. If you live in the following
                             areas, please contact one of us and we will be happy to
                             answer questions. There are online opportunities for
                             anyone who has difficulty getting to a particular place.

                             Centering Prayer is a Christ-centered form of silent
                             prayer, a renewal of the ancient Christian practice of
                             contemplative prayer presented in a contemporary form.
                             Silent prayer, or contemplation, is a way to deepen a
                             intimate relationship with God.

                             Testament became alive for me in David's class," said
                             parishioner Sun Spriggs. "He delivered the serious
                             scholarship of the New Testament in an entertaining
                             style such that I was mesmerized in every class."
