at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary

Program led by Melissa Wiginton, Research Professor in Methodist Studies and Vice President for Education Beyond the Walls

Melissa writes, “Dwight L. Moody once said he was a citizen of heaven but a voter in Cook County, Illinois. As tempting as it is to avoid politics, we are called to particular places with particular public challenges. We will consider how to approach pastoral leadership for public life in practical ways. Come and open yourself to the possibilities.”

Enneagram Workshop – Saturday, September 30

The Capital District is offering an Enneagram Workshop scheduled for Saturday, September 30th from 9AM – 4PM at St. John’s UMC in Austin.

The Enneagram is an ancient and sacred system for identifying personality types and promoting personal growth and compassion.
 It is a powerful tool for explaining why people behave the way they do and the role of motivation in determining personality.


Learning the Enneagram

  • Promotes growth through self-awareness.
  • Celebrates diversity and values the dignity of all persons.
  • Creates a desire to interrelate rather than isolate.
  • Supports the building of community through strengthening individuals.
  • Promotes teamwork and improves communication in the workplace.


This workshop will help participants identify their Number as well as explore in more depth how they can achieve more balance in their own lives and relationships.

Rev. Dr. Georjean Blanton is a United Methodist minister and Shalem trained spiritual director who has trained with Suzanne Stabile and Fr. Richard Rohr in the Enneagram. She writes, “The Enneagram is the most valuable resource for spiritual growth that I have found  in the almost fifteen years that I have been a spiritual director.”
