January 2018

Happy New Year!

We're looking forward to a splendid 2018 and hope the same for you. This week we welcome many of our Doctor of Ministry students to campus where they will be learning about "Care as Public Advocacy" with Professor Philip Helsel, "Theodicy and Suffering" with Professor Suzie Park, and "Music in the Church's Worship" with Professor Eric Wall.

January classes allow our masters-level students the opportunity to marinate a bit, taking just one class at a time. They are looking at contextual Bible study with Professor Margaret Aymer, the Reformed Confessions with Professor David Johnson, and "Good News and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter" with Professor Carolyn Helsel (which happens to include a travel component to Universal Studios in Florida).

Later this month the twelve members of the current Pastoral Leadership for Public Life (PLPL) cohort will gather on campus to explore the theme of education equality.

And there are dozens of folks across the country logging into online Certificate in Ministry (CIM) courses to learn about PC(USA) polity with Professor Paul Hooker and how to read the Bible theologically with Professor Cynthia Rigby. You can find out more about the CIM program here.

Finally, Education Beyond the Walls has dreamed up a full slate of engaging learning options for the spring—from one-hour webinars to a full-week writing workshop. Read about each of them and decide which one sparks your interest here.
