January Term 2018 Offerings
Biblical and Theological Foundations for Mission (APPL 515 / BIBL 515)
Wed Jan 3–Sat Jan 6, 1:30–5:30 pm
1 or 2 credits
Many contemporary ‘missional church’ discussions have led either to creative practices without deep theological roots or to rigorous theology that lacks the freedom to experiment with missional practices. This course will unfold a missional reading of Scripture that inspires deeply-rooted, creative leadership. We will trace the missional arc of Scripture and bring alive the original missional contexts in the biblical law, prophets, wisdom literature, gospels, and Pauline epistles. Using this exegetical approach, we will trace the contours of a missional theology, examining how this lens enlivens our doctrines of God, the Spirit, and the church. Through workshops and discussion, we will imagine a fresh missional ecclesiology. We will ask how the missional core of the biblical narrative informs the church’s cultural engagement—locally, globally, personally, and structurally—and what practices can form and sustain the deep engagement of a missional community.

Paul's Gospel of Peace: Soundings in the Letter to the Romans (BIBL 557)
Wed Jan 3–Sat Jan 6, 8:30 am–12:30 pm
1 or 2 credits
In a world often scarred by alienation and strife, the Apostle Paul spoke a message of peace: peace with God, and peace with one another. This course will engage with Paul’s creative and powerful thought by looking at key passages and themes within his most influential letter. In this letter the apostle exposes the roots of the human dilemma and reveals the path to a restored relationship with God and with our fellow human beings. The course will also invite reflection on the profound relevance of Paul’s insights for a flourishing life of faith today. Read more.
