Learning from the Global Church: Themes in Theology and Christian Living
Leader: Morgan Crago
A century ago, most Christians (82%) were found in what sociologists call the Global North (US, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan). Today, over 60% of the Christian population lives in the Global South—in the rest of the world’s 190+ countries. As Christians, one key way we learn to live the Christian life is through observing the lived-out practice of fellow believers, most of whom today live in context far different from our own. In this course, we will discuss a variety of topics—the history of 20th century world Christianity, works of key theologians of the Global South, and practical issues arising in the global church such as healing, prosperity theology, conversion, spiritual warfare, and interactions with other religious groups. Throughout, we will attempt to answer the question “How can we be encouraged and challenged in our own Christian walk by learning from these Christian congregations throughout the world?”
Decision Making and the Will of God
Lead Facilitator: Chris Madsen
We will explore what the Bible tells us about the general principles for determining the will of God; and how those principles free us from bondage to the legalism of man-made rules. We will also discuss how to apply those principles in various ways in the day to day situations which we face in the course of our lives.
