Unless you are brand new, you are probably getting the hang of how our “4E discipleship process” goes:
Over time, this 4E process can take someone from being a non-Christian to a mature disciple ( = follower) of Jesus. Of course you can do all four of these Es at any time. But in the last two years, we’ve emphasised one E for each of the four school terms. Now we reckon it might make even more sense to match the Es to the seasons.
In particular, emphasising ‘E for Engage’ in Summer brings into play all the Christmas chances to connect with our community. It also helps us think of the more relaxed pace of summer holidays as a time to engage personally with friends, neighbours and family. And it makes the most of the chance to connect with new students and other residents arriving in February for the start of a new academic and working year.
And emphasising ‘E for Evangelise’ in Autumn means Easter, and its lead up, will always fall into this period. It’s often one of our best times for directly speaking about Jesus.
Anyhow, you get the idea. Let me speak a little more about opportunities to engage in summer that St Michael’s is assisting you with, apart from your own efforts and ideas…
Later, over March 22-23, we expect many will be interested as we host seminars from Dr Patricia Weerakoon, a Christian sexologist, social commentator and educator on sexuality, sexual health etc. And for the 160th anniversary of our Cathedral building in December 2019, we look forward to some great chances to re-engage our community.
