ALLLM Newsletter Returns

After a year or so of re-grouping, we're resuming this newsletter. Please take a moment to forward it along to anyone else you know who might be interested in receiving news about this kind of continuing education programming.

At our Annual General Meeting in December 2017, the members of ALLLM chose to become a "Related Learning Organization" with the Religious Education Association, and to hold our annual meetings in conjunction with theirs.

The Religious Education Association is the world’s oldest and largest association of scholars and researchers in the field of religious education.It is a nonprofit member association, serving as a professional and learned society for scholars, researchers and practitioners involved in the field of religious education. It has several hundred members, most of whom are from North America, with a scattering of members worldwide. REA members come from multiple faith traditions, and no tradition, and study a very diverse array of religious traditions.

ALLLM and REA Annual Meetings

2-4 November, 2018
Washington DC
The REA has recently issued its Call for Proposals. You can read it here, and we encourage you to think about whether there are topics or issues you might be interested in sharing at this conference. The theme for their conference is "Beyond White Normativity; Creating Brave Spaces."

We believe that ALLLM members have an important perspective to offer on these issues, and on the practice of Religious Education generally. Our membership is involved in nurturing the quality of the current leadership of the church; not just just in preparing the next generation of leaders. Our audience is leading the church today, and so in the workshops that we contribute into the mix we want to encourage reflection on the needs of those leaders, on the best teaching techniques, on the new questions that arise in ministry 10 or 20 or 30 years after someone graduates, and on the ways that education can help the church right now.

Your practice is important. The programming you create and coordinate matters. Your experience is worth sharing.

If you're interested in responding to the Call for Proposals, or in being part of a team that puts together a workshop for this meeting, please contact us right away!  Click HERE to email Stephen Fetter, and he'll pass on your thoughts to the rest of our Leadership Team.
