Stevenson School for Ministry

The Stevenson School for Ministry believes that discernment is deeply important for spiritual growth. Through discernment, we explore the range of vocations (diakonia, priesthood, lay ministry) in which we as the Body of Christ can engage. Discernment helps us learn to articulate the places where God is active in our lives through a process of listening, reflecting, and responding in circles of community. And, actively engaging in discernment helps us to identify our gifts for ministry while discovering new learning opportunities to serve God and our neighbor. The Stevenson School for Ministry is dedicated to the lifelong learning and discernment processes of all Episcopalians in the Diocese of Central Pennsylvania and beyond. We seek to make theological education available to all, because we believe it to be essential to furthering the mission and ministry of the Church.

The Prophets Miriam her brother Moses, “the meekest man in Israel” (Numbers 12:3), lead Israel from slavery in Egypt to national identity under God. Miriam leads the people in celebrating God’s deliverance at the Red Sea (Exodus 15); Moses mediates God’s Laws to Israel. In 1st CCE Israel, the prophet Jesus teaches God’s laws as a meek King (Matthew 21:5), whilst Mary prepares disciples to proclaim God’s realm courageously after his death and resurrection. What are the qualities of meek leadership for men like Moses and Jesus, and women like Mary? Are there meek dispositions and practices we can emulate today?
