A fresh look at Anglicanism

December 9, 2013

The upcoming term at Christian Foundations for Ministry will take a long hard look at the Anglican world. This is a “continuing education” type class that does not require you to write a paper or take any exams. There are assigned readings and, once every week, we all get together for a spirited discussion. The new Anglican Worldview class is ready to roll out on Tuesday evening January, 14, 2014. The tentative plan is to conduct the classes in the St. Andrew’s Anglican Church library in Little Rock and on the internet by private teleconference on WebEx. We will begin the weekly gatherings at 7 PM Central and conclude at 8:30.

Those of you who participated in a similar course on Anglicanism offered over the summer of 2011 may recall that we nearly ended up in open revolt. We all learned a great deal and no furniture was damaged, but the clear need for a fresh textbook was made very obvious. We ill be using The Study of Anglicanism. Sykes, Booty, and Knight, Editors. Revised Edition; Fortress Press, 1998. The Anglicanism 2014 Syllabus is attached and I must admit being very excited about this broader approach to the Anglican Way. The book is a bit “thick,” but the class will not be reading the whole thing and I will walk you through the good stuff. Don’t be afraid!

Registration is open now. If you are interested, drop me a line! (Pat Lynch email link is in the left hand column.) The CFM school admits students of any race, color, national origin, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
