Minding the Good Ground - Church Renewal Conference - March 13, 2013 - With Dr. Jason E. Vickers

 

Many proposals for church renewal begin by asking

the question, "What is wrong with the church?"

Jason Vickers, associate professor of theology and Wesleyan studies at United Theological Seminary, deliberately avoids this strategy, beginning instead with the question, "What is the nature of the church?" From that point of departure he leads an inquiry into the mission of the church and explores the sacramental life of the church. In doing so, the goal is to develop a theological framework within which to think about and to assess the many proposals for church renewal presently swirling around us.
