Course Synopsis: How did a movement based on sharing grace become a multi-continent denomination at war with itself?  Whose voice and experiences got lost and found in the 275 years along the way of "methodism"? What in this history do you want to claim, and what do you want to reform?  These questions are bigger than one 10 week course, but in these 10 weeks you will discover how to live toward answers as a leader among the next generation of the people called Methodist.  This course is required for persons seeking ordination in The United Methodist Church (and probably in its successors, whatever they might be, as well).

We are going to be a mixed group of folks in this course - in multiple ways!

One important way we are mixed is that some of us are Iliff students taking the course as a hybrid and we'll be on campus together October 12-13, while others of us are Christian Theological School in Indianapolis students and we will be online only.  But except for weeks 5 and 6, we're ALL going to learn and engage together in this space. In weeks 5 and 6 Canvas will automatically show you only the assignments relevant to you (if I set it up correctly.)  8-20-2018
