This course is being offered on five Fridays in class and via livestream online.
Class dates are: Sept. 15, 29; Oct 13; Nov 3, 24. 9am to 4pm.
The course attempts to analyze the nature and the impact of the Pentecostal/Charismatic movement of the twentieth century. Due to widespread misunderstanding of the nature of Pentecostalism, a premium is placed on understanding Pentecostalism well enough to explain it clearly to others. The course is designed to engage the learner in a process that fosters openness to the work of the Spirit in the Pentecostal movement. That is, by reflecting on Pentecostalism and its emphasis on encountering God through the presence of the Spirit the student’s perception of and participation in God’s work in the world will be enhanced. For the Pentecostal student, this course invites renewal through considering the roots of the tradition and reconsidering what the tradition says about life and ministry in the Spirit. For the non-Pentecostal, it invites confronting a distinct protestant expression of spirituality toward a greater appreciation of the Spirit’s work in the Kingdom of God.
