Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina to host All Our Children National Symposium

January 16 – 18, 2018
Trinity Episcopal Cathedral
Columbia, SC


All Our Children: The Church’s Role in Education Equity is an ecumenical learning event focusing on the urgency of quality public education for all children and lifting up how communities of faith are already strengthening public education in their cities, states, and across the nation. This three day gathering will include informative, interactive workshops and plenaries led by practicing educators, experienced community leaders, and hands-on researchers. Our time together will focus on specific steps you and your congregation can take to build Beloved Community through local partnerships, action, and service, with time for conversation, idea sharing, and networking.

Participants can expect to develop a deep understanding of Christian faith foundations for public education support, engagement, and advocacy and to leave the conference with specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timed action plans to share with church and community leaders in their home cities and states.

Sign up to tutor for the 2017-2018 school year.

Dear Friends,

It is time to sign up to tutor for the 2017-2018 school year… hard to believe when the days are long and we are eating peaches, but it is true.

I so value your participation in READING MATTERS and hope you will continue next year. The sign-up form with important dates is attached. Fill it out and return to me. There is no need to complete the background check information as you are all returning tutors.Please do indicate where you would like to tutor. I will do my best to fulfill those requests.

As you all know, people are more likely to do something when asked by a friend. I am asking you to think about your friends who would make good tutors. Invite four more people to join in this work. All of the schools can use more tutors. Thanks for considering doing this. I am happy to speak with anyone who has questions about this program.

Grace and peace,
