Course for Anglican/Episcopal Seminarians, August 2001
You will recall
hearing about this Course from me as long ago as December 1999
at your Council meeting, and from time to time since then.
I am very
happy to tell you that plans are going very well, and so far we
have 25 students enrolled. It is particularly encouraging that
they come from 15 countries in the Anglican Communion, (including
6 from ECUSA) as our principal purpose has always been to enable
Anglicans to speak to each other, and learn from each other, from
a variety of contrasting cultures.
A few places
still remain, and I write now to tell you that the Episcopal Evangelical
Education Society has made us a substantial grant which enables
us to offer a £500 subsidy to each participating student
from ECUSA. The Room and Board for the 3-week Course is £840,
plus Tuition Fee £300, total £1,140. Thanks to the
generosity of EEES that total charge is now reduced to £640.
In the light
of this reduction there may be students in your Seminary who would
like to come. I would be very grateful if you could let this be
known in the student community, and ask anyone interested to contact
the Course can be found on the Website of the Rev Professor Michael
Battle, Duke Divinity School, who is leading the Course with the
assistance of theologians from India, South Africa and England,
I wish you
well at the outset of your long summer, and send you warm greetings
from Canterbury in the fellowship of the Gospel.
