“Discerning God’s Purposes in Extraordinary Times” — Lawrence Yoder

& Chapel Gathering in the Seminary, Discernment, Faculty/Staff Speakers.

Dr. Lawrence Yoder, EMS Professor Emeritus of Missiology, explores what it means to “discern God’s purposes in extraordinary times,” drawing from Jeremiah 23:23-32 and Luke 12:49-56.

Seminary Dean Dr. Michael King has begun to articulate a vision for EMS as a “Discernment Training Center” (see Convocation, Fall 2012 and Convocation, Fall 2013). This fall semester, Seminary Faculty are sharing about their own awareness of the topic of discernment through the lens of their own particular discipline or area of study.

The entire campus community is invited to every chapel service on campus. Eastern Mennonite Seminary hosts chapel gatherings in Martin Chapel every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 11:00.
