This course is not just for women! The workshop is about how Christians in different cultures, different time periods, and different social locations have told their faith stories.

Amy Oden, professor of the History of Christianity and Dean of Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC, presents video lectures on six Christian women who wrote about their faith. The workshop explores how we, as members of the Christian family, tell our “family stories.” It also helps us to examine our own faith and to articulate our own experiences of God. Lessons Include: Perpetua: Rebellious Daughter (2nd century Carthage) Macrina: Scientist and Pastor (4th century Asia Minor) Juana Inez de la Cruz: Intellectual in the Kitchen (17th century Mexico) Susanna Wesley: First Theologian of the Methodists (18th century England) Jarena Lee: Preaching Pioneer (19th century United States) Georgia Harkness: Theologian for the People (20th century United States) Each week’s study consists of two weekly readings and three or four video segments (under 10 minutes each) plus online discussion for each video.

Participants login at the time of day which works best for each one’s own schedule while still interacting with one another and the facilitator of the course.

***This is an online course, meaning you can participate at the time of day that works best for your schedule. Course materials will become available at Noon Central on the start day, and you should plan to spend an hour or two (whenever you choose) every day interacting with the course and on the discussion boards.***
