How may we lead our congregations toward a deeper, more profoundly transforming encouter with God through Christ in the power of the Spirit? We will engage in Scripture reading, prayer, and theological conversation together in attempting to learn from the ministry and message of John Wesley, and some of today's leading interpreters of Wesley, to help us address this critical question. In that light, we'll explore such questions as:
- What is the nature of authentic encounter with God?
- What does it mean practically to teach and to live the biblical proclamation that "God is love"?
- What is the role of the sacraments in faithful Wesleyan ministry?
- How do the worship, preaching, and spiritual formation that occur in our churches relate us faithfully to the vast world of God's creation beyond church walls?
