LS/SP502b – Anglican Retreat: Ordination
Instructor(s): Rev. Grant Rodgers
This 5-hour course (10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.), held at VST, encourages participants to consider the history and ongoing rationale of holy orders in the Anglican Church. We examine the ordinal and other resources to consider the current mandate for ministry being articulated by the Anglican Church of Canada. We reflect together on the various models and assumptions related to ordained ministry (including their own), as well as issues of power and authority, leadership, spirituality and self-care.
