Forma invites reflection and prayer
We as a Forma leadership board are aware, first of all, that livelihoods of the formation officers of the Episcopal Church are at stake and, also, that this means far fewer resources for partnering on formation activities at the congregational and diocesan levels.
As Christian educators who value collaboration and partnership, we can respond with care, creativity, and imagination to support the Christian formation that is so vital to the life of the Church.
We as a board are considering a short-term response and a strategy to challenge General Convention to re-examine budget priorities in Indianapolis. If you have ideas for how to be influential please contact Wendy Claire Barrie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let us all be in reflection and prayer for the current and future priorities of our Church.
Lyle SmithGraybeal, President and Wendy Claire Barrie, Vice-President
