Theology 101

Theology 101 is a stop on the Learner Island of our NCC Discipleship Map. I'm shooting for a quasi- systematic theology approach to the curriculum, drawing from a number of resources. Our first group meeting is tonight, and I have no idea what to expect. We didn't require RSVPs for this one, so I don't know if we'll have 8 or 80. If we have 8, it will be more like a facilitated discussion small group. If it's 80, it will be more platform/lecture driven like The Story. It's really difficult to prepare when I have no clue how many people might show up.

Regardless, it will definitely have a more academic feel, and I think the syllabus will look something like this:

June 11- Introduction, Goals, and Definitions
June 18- The Doctrine of the Bible
June 25- The Doctrine of God
July 9- The Doctrine of Man
July 16- The Doctrine of Christ and Redemption
July 23- The Doctrine of the Church
July 30- The Doctrine of the Future

Perhaps a bit ambitious? Did I leave anything out?

Yep, that's ambitious! If you talk about the Holy Spirit and the Sacraments in the Church section, I think you've got the bases covered. Enjoy your class! Be full of that Spirit!

Hey Ruth!

Yep, the Holy Spirit and Sacraments will be covered during the church week.

Just had our first group meeting. 22 people. 22 seems to be the magic number for me these days. :)

late with this one...

assuming "sin" is covered in doctrine of man? it's pretty important for the whole redemption thing! :)

i like this idea. maybe too ambitious for my style... i'd get bogged down.

Yep-- sin comes under doctrine of man. It is kinda important! :)
