This course is not just for women! The online workshop, from, 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, D.C., 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 that works best for their own schedules while still interacting with one another and the facilitator of the course. Plan on roughly 2-6 hours online weekly engaging with the materials and the other students. No live or set meeting times are involved. 1.5 CEUs are available. Price: $50
