CEM MEADS – Nov 20-24, 2017

(Please register before Nov 3, 2017)

  • Community of Christ Scriptures – Dale Luffman

    A major task before the church is to develop a liberative understanding of scripture understood in relationship to its central content and functioning in the community of faith. As an irreplaceable and unique witness, scripture witnesses to the liberating and reconciling activity of God in the history of Israel and supremely in Jesus Christ. This course will explore the significance of Community of Christ scriptures for ministry and witness in light of Doctrine and Covenants 163:7 and the official statement Scripture in the Community of Christ.

  • Community of Christ Theology – Tony and Charmaine Chvala-Smith

    This course examines the relationship of the emerging Community of Christ identity and theology to its roots in Christian tradition, the early Latter Day Saint movement, and the Reorganization. Special attention will be paid to the dynamics that have reshaped Community of Christ’s beliefs and practices in the last five decades. Among these are the church becoming a global community, its adoption of modern historical methods, involvement in ecumenical and interfaith movements, and its critical assessment of its theology. Participants will be encouraged to consider how they can meaningfully express the faith, identity, and mission of the church in their ministry today.
