Communities of Learning
Communities of Learning is a four-session curriculum intended for small group gatherings, online or in person. The sessions are based on Episcopal Relief & Development’s three life-changing priorities – Women, Children and Climate. The fourth session focuses on our Disaster Response and Resilience work. The objective is to help participants grow in awareness of and desire to serve the populations and priorities aligned with these areas of Episcopal Relief & Development. As a faith formation curriculum, it offers group support and asks participants to be open to where God may be leading. We know that our strengths come from pursuing what we are interested in, so we trust that our strengths relative to this good work will be revealed in the prayerful learning process.
There is a PowerPoint or PDF for each of the four sessions with notes for the leader or presenter. You can use whatever format works best for your group. The facilitator’s guide provides formation objectives, learning goals, community agreements, preparation tips and additional resources.
