Hello world! May 3, 2007Posted by Tim Coleman in Introduction.
As part of my foundation training I need to complete a project which is related to Methodist theology and spirituality. This is it.
I am trying to explore how Fresh Expressions of Church and Methodism work together and I want to do this using a series of questions and comments and invite others (you) to contribute. By this process I hope to gain insight of what it is that makes Methodism Methodist and what should be the distinctive elements of the Methodist Church in the years to come.
I hope that this process will be helpful to others too.
I have posted a few questions under separate tabs which should create streams of discussion.
I have now posted a number of questions, using elements of Methodist Theology, spirituality and I guess ecclesiology to see just what is key in Methodism for a fresh expression of Church.
There is also one question on the effectiveness of this type of forum for this sort of discussion, please take a moment to give me your opinion.
Occasionally I revist a question, adding to it or clarifying because I am still testing my own thinking and reflecting on my own perceptions, so it’s worth checking back every now and then just to see what’s changed. I am working on a conclusion of sorts, I’m not entirely sure that it is possible but its worth a try.
The project has been assessed and it passed (65%) which I am quite happy about. Thanks to all who have contributed, I hope that it has been and will continue to be useful to others. I intend to keep the project running.
