CONNECTING COMMUNITIES

 

June 8-11, 2016

Tallinn, Pirita Convent

 

Connecting communities – as the title of our 2016 EAEE conference implies – relies on three columns: communicating, cooperating and contributing. These have always marked the tradition of Christian adult education.

We extend a warm welcome to all of you who will join us in meeting, sharing, and discussing the features of our field of work in Estonia and its international network. Ideas, best practice, experiences, questions, feelings throughout the conference will find their documentation on a story wall – just another experience of time and ideas shared creatively.

Two questions will guide us through the four-day conference:

  • How do we define ourselves as Christian communities?
  • Which communities have created new sustainable practices?

Gerson Amat Torregrosa

Sad news: Gerson Amat Torregrosa, our spanish friend and colleague died in August.

We feel very sad about Gersons death, for him, his relatives, for his church and the friendly team we met in Madrid. Gerson was a significant link with the southern Europe protestant churches. We are grateful for him, who he was and how he supported EAEE for many years. He managed the Madrid study tour last year. We remember the depth of his spiritual thoughts during the morning services at Escorial. He will be in our prayers.

 

 

 

 


 

David Goodbourn

We are sad to hear the news that Dr.David Goodbourn died on 9th November 2014. 

For many years David was involved in the ecumenical movement, both through the World Council of Churches and in the UK.  As president of EAEE, and more recently as leader of our study tour in Manchester in 2011,  he was known as a convincing theologian with a wide knowledge of adult education, a colleague  with personal convictions  and the ability to listen to people carefully and recognise other opinions.

Before he died, he reflected on his own situation and belief in a deeply touching essay.

Please read this in remembrance of him:
