I started teaching my theology and doctrine class on Monday. I gave an overview of church history and the history of Christian thought, emphasizing what we United Methodists share in common with the universal church “in all times and in all places.” I’ve also been highlighting our distinctive Wesleyan emphases. (To say the least, we had a lively discussion about our Methodist doctrine of “Christian perfection.”)
I hope you can get a sense from this video of how I’m spending the week. My colleague, Rev. Dr. Susan Taylor, who’s teaching the class with me, filmed me “in action” in the classroom!
