The April edition of the Scottish Episcopal Institute Newsletter leads on how the Institute is committed to serving students’ families better.
Marianne Lucchesi, wife of first year Argyll and The Isles ordinand Tony Clapham, writes about how she has felt included in her husband’s studies as part of the SEI community, and how her own studies have allowed the couple of share their learning experiences and grow more close in their relationship with one another and God.
The newsletter also details a range of pioneering courses being made available by the Revd Dr Richard Tiplady, Director of Mixed Mode Training at the SEI, while a report from the recent Staff Conference highlights a session from Dr Sanjee Perera, the Church of England Archbishops’ Adviser on Minority Ethnic Anglican Concerns, on The Pedagogy of Theological Education: Inclusion and Critical Whiteness in Theology.
Elsewhere, readers can follow a ‘Day in the life’ of the Rev Dr Michael Hull, SEI Director of Studies, while there are also items on the L’Engle Seminar, which brings together artists and scientists to explore how their work is in conversation with each other’s discipline and with theology; an upcoming seminar on supportive learning, as the SEI seeks to increase the support given to candidates with Specific Learning Differences; and a schedule for Vocations Sunday, when students will preach in various charges across the Province on 25 April.
The Newsletter is available here.
