John Wesley: Catholic Evangelical - Cancelled on Aug 29, 2017

Graduate degree students enrol in WYT6531HF

COLLEGE: Wycliffe College SCHEDULE: Tue TIME: 11:00 to 13:00

CREDITS: One Credit

Examining cl1iefly Wesley's "Sermons on Several Occasions" (i.e., tracts), the course delineates Wesley's theological identity. It locates Wesley in his immediate environment: theological, religious, intellectual and social. It honours Wesley's insistence on a "practical divinity" that subserves evangelism and Christian formation rather than speculation--without thereby sacrificing theological substance, academic integrity or ecumenical significance. It probes important aspects of his theological formation; e.g., his grasp of the Magisterial and English Reformation, his expertise in Patristics, his debt to the Puritans, his affinity with aspects of Eastern Orthodoxy, and his appreciation of Counter-Reformation spirituality.

Theological interpretation: Theory and Practice

Theological Interpretation" is a contemporary catch-phrase for an approach to scriptural interpretation that stands in general contrast to historical-critical approaches. Less a method in its own right than a set of (not necessarily uniform) values with respect to reading Scripture, theological interpretation has often been seen as a protest movement against the exclusive hold of historical-criticism on Christian reading of the Bible .. It has variously emphasized ecclesial and doctrinal contexts or referents for interpreting the Scriptural text, and has made use of several traditional methods of exegesis, including typology, figure, and sacrament in addition to historical criticism. Behind the application of these methods are a range of theological presuppositions about the nature of God and divine revelation in Christ. This course seeks to sort out some of the background and meanings associated with the broad movement called "theological interpretation", by looking at some theoretical and historical discussions. More importantly, the course will engage actual practice of theological interpretation, examining different approaches to a given Scriptural text, in order to gauge continuities and discontinuities among theological interpreters, to evaluate critically their approaches, and finally to help students develop a clear theological understanding of the nature and presuppositions of faithful Scriptural interpretation

Landing the Plane: The Missional Church on the Ground

WYP3621HF L0101 SESSION: Fall 2017 INSTRUCTOR(S):

COLLEGE: Wycliffe College SCHEDULE: Mon

CREDITS: One Credit

This course, set in an interactive seminar format, will explore and frame our understanding of the Church as missional. Beginning with the biblical underpinnings of missional thinking we will consider the local church, in conjunction with our historic 'attractional' sense of place, core purposes of the local church and the requisite theological understandings undergirding effective ministry will be explored. Located in the Canadian church context, it will be vital to consider the missional use of buildings and property, the use of technology as a tool for mission and the realities of current church structures and organization with respect to missional thinking.
