Congratulations to this year's Education for Ministry (EfM) graduates: Josephine Gain, Sharon Mias and Paul Tollefson!
Thanks to Paul Rowe Tollefson for sharing these wonderful photos and thoughts on his experience -
My 4 years in EfM have been such a transformative experience - I have grown in my faith, become comfortable with my own broad theology, and been challenged to action. I leave inspired and motivated by this quote I was exposed to in class which has become a favorite of mine:
"Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief. Do justly, now. Love mercy, now. You are not required to complete the task to repair the world, nor are you free to abandon it." Rabbi Tarfon, Pirke Avot (Ethics of the Fathers) 2:16
