Information for the 2021 Comenius Learning Series will be posted here in the coming months. Stay tuned!
The Comenius Learning Series provides opportunities for all Moravians to think, learn, and grow. The name recognizes the profound influence of John Amos Comenius, a Czech philosopher and educator considered the father of modern education, who was also a Moravian bishop of the ancient Unity.
He wrote that education must “illumine the intellect, direct the will, and stimulate the conscience. . . it is impossible to separate those three ornaments of the soul — erudition, virtue, and piety.” With this series, we honor his life, legacy, and understanding that we are to “make the whole of life a school.”
The Southern Province of the Moravian Church has a rich history of offering meaningful religious education for members through its Lay Seminary program. Together, we’ve grown in our faith and made an impact on those searching for a deeper relationship with God. This series responds to requests for more events that deepen our understanding of the spiritual, cultural, and historical perspectives of the Moravian Church and Christianity as a whole. We also focus on ideas regarding practical aspects of congregational leadership and faith life.
The Board of Cooperative Ministries is committed to enriching the growth of lifelong learners, both clergy and laity. It is our hope that The Comenius Learning Series will further support and strengthen the faith of our members by providing faith formation, Biblical study, and religious education that makes a difference in the life of individual members.
