Clergy, General Public Welcome at Drew’s “Seminary

MADISON, NJ—Drew Theological School
announces the inauguration of “Seminary Saturdays,” a program for lay people
and clergy who are interested in gaining perspectives beyond the local church.
Each Saturday morning offers one workshop on a practical topic and one on a
theological topic.

The series begins on Saturday,
October 4, with a continental breakfast from 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. followed by
one of two workshops: “Is the Good News about Jesus Bad News for Jews:
Christian Theology and the Jewish Neighbor,” presented by Chris Boesel, and
“Hiring, Firing, and Getting Along: A Guide to Working with Church Staff,”
offered by Gary Simpson and Emma Jordan-Simpson.  A simple lunch will follow at noon.

The series continues on November 8,
December 6, February 7, March 7 and April 4. For a full description of the
workshops, visit

Admission is $25 per workshop or
$100 for all six. Churches may purchase a membership to send up to eight people
to each event for $500.

Drew Theological School’s Center
for Continuing Education seeks to provide a rich, nurturing context in which
people may mine the intellectual depths of their faith and broaden their
thinking. It is a place to engage the challenge of integrating new perspectives
with time-tested faith, or to explore belief from the perspective of a skeptic.

Yardley, the school’s associate academic dean at 973/408-3419.
