This event is brought to you by the department of Lifelong Learning at Virginia Theological Seminary

There are many texts related to ministry that can challenge and make us better. It can be difficult to prioritize reading these books with all the other demands on our plate. Lifelong Learning is offering the opportunity to read and work through these important texts online via Zoom meeting. Participants can sign up for one or more of the reading groups to provide the space for intentional conversation to work through these. Note that you save $9 if you purchase the ticket for both of the remaining series together!

Sessions will be on Tuesdays in the afternoons or evenings (depending on the series... see below) for a total of 5 meetings each:

Study Series One | July 5 - August 2, 3:00-4:00 p.m. Eastern

- Maria Harris, Fashion Me A People: Curriculum in the Church (206 pages)
