  2. aware of the skills and disposition needed … to explore Christian doctrine more deeply in the light of experience and practice
  3. … attuned to the work of the Holy Spirit in the church and the world through history and in the present
  4. passionate and prayerful advocates for the mission of God
  5. clearer about their vocation in the church and the world and therefore more determined to pursue personal and corporate life long learning as disciples of Christ
  6. open to the insights and challenges that emerge from serious engagement and cooperation with others, in and beyond the church.”
