Continuing Education

In the Episcopal Church clergy must complete a given number of continuing education hours each year. In my diocese, the requirement is 18 hours annually, which must be spread between theological, professional and personal arenas. Reading, and seminars, and learning, inside the "day job" and outside of it as well. The spectrum is important; it helps to keep us balanced, and is one way of discouraging spiritual and ministerial burnout.

On Wednesday I began a class which goes toward "personal" development. I will be learning to quilt! The ladies who run Cloud Nine Quilts (scroll down the list, as there is no direct link) are a hoot, and we rookies (five of us in the class) are having great fun as we measure and plan and cut and sew together. If this turns out, I'll show you a picture of the finished product in a few weeks. Even if it doesn't, it will have been worth the time. It's wonderful to be back playing with fabric again!

So glad they require you for personal professional development. You should have fun!
