The Spirit Of Methodism: Missionary Zeal And The Gift Of An Evangelist, Philip R. Meadows Jan 2019

The Spirit Of Methodism: Missionary Zeal And The Gift Of An Evangelist, Philip R. Meadows

The Asbury Journal

The church does not need more vital congregations, but rather a few vital Christians, whose vitality is not measured in terms of institutional effectiveness, but by missionary zeal. This zeal is a hungering and thirsting for just one thing: the glory of God and the salvation of souls. It cannot be manufactured, but can only be caught from those who have been gifted by the Spirit to continue the charism of their founder, and fanned into flame. Without this type of Christian, there is no movement, and there is no Methodism. John Welsey's most important legacy was not his ...


A Fresh Expression Of "And Are We Yet Alive?", George Hendricks, Kelli Taylor Jan 2019

A Fresh Expression Of "And Are We Yet Alive?", George Hendricks, Kelli Taylor

The Asbury Journal

The paper addresses the decline in membership and overall societal influence of The United Methodist Church. In response to these life-threatening developments, new forms of ministry are emerging within the church. Many of these new ministries are grouped under a program called "Fresh Expressions" which began in the Church of England and are effectively being implemented in American Methodism. Storefront churches are discussed, bi-vocational ministers are considered and the concept of the "Third Place" as a form of ministry is introduced. Three focused interviews are utilized to understand the need and necessity for changes in the way The United Methodist ...


Advocating For Dreamers: A Wesleyan Approach To U.S. Immigration Reform, Rebekah Clapp Jan 2019

Advocating For Dreamers: A Wesleyan Approach To U.S. Immigration Reform, Rebekah Clapp

The Asbury Journal

This paper argues that Wesley's theology supports radical hospitality toward all U.S. immigrants, regardless of documentation. Specifically, the emphasis John Wesley placed on loving one's neighbor forces us to consider the immigrant's well being alongside our own. Additionally, his understanding of liberty calls for Christians to support human flourishing for all people. Further, Wesley's argument that all humanity is to be considered equal rejects any idea of superiority or supremacy as justification for withholding hospitality. Finally, in John Welsey's daily spiritual practices, he emphasized care for society's most vulnerable members- who must, in ...


Ecclesia Semper Sanctificanda: Historic Models Of Catechesis And The Cultivation Of Social Holiness, Jonathan A. Powers Jan 2019

Ecclesia Semper Sanctificanda: Historic Models Of Catechesis And The Cultivation Of Social Holiness, Jonathan A. Powers

The Asbury Journal

This study aims to show how the maintenance of holy life and love in the church requires intentional and continual cultivation by the church. If the church is to be continually sanctified then it must intentionally invest in the sanctification of its members. The article examines three historic examples of catechesis in order to exhibit models whereby the church has taken seriously the task of forming disciples who display holiness of heart and life. This article looks at the Didache and On the Apostolic Tradition, as well a John Wesley's use of societies, class meetings, and band meetings to ...


Thus Sayeth The Matthean Lord: Exploring The Intersection Of The Quest For The Historical Jesus And The Proclaimation Of The Biblical Jesus, Edward T. Wright Jan 2019

Thus Sayeth The Matthean Lord: Exploring The Intersection Of The Quest For The Historical Jesus And The Proclaimation Of The Biblical Jesus, Edward T. Wright

The Asbury Journal

The themes of Biblical Studies and mission meet in a significant way at the intersection of the quest for the historical Jesus (an aspect of biblical studies) and the proclamation of the biblical Jesus (an aspect of the mission of the Church). This intersection undoubtedly occurs in the context we currently find ourselves, the evangelical seminary setting. This paper explores a passage, Matthew 4:-11, that has both significant theological content but also some rather difficult historical issues. When confronted with this type of problem, is it possible to navigate the passage in such a way that the historical Jesus ...


African Christians Or Christian Africans: Byang H. Kato And His Contextual Theology, Sochanngam Shirik Jan 2019

African Christians Or Christian Africans: Byang H. Kato And His Contextual Theology, Sochanngam Shirik

The Asbury Journal

Byang Henry Kato, a promising African Christian leader, passed away in 1975 at only 39 years of age. In spite of his brief career, he has left his imprint on the pages of African Christian history. He is not without his supporters and critics alike. It appears that while his critics have misunderstood him in some aspects, his supporters have not paid enough attention to his theological conviction and articulation. While this article aims at clarifying some of Kato's conviction, it also informs readers how, regardless of context and time, others can appreciate, learn, and even adopt some aspects ...


Growing Up In America's Segregated South: Reminiscences And Regrets, Mark R. Elliott Jan 2019

Growing Up In America's Segregated South: Reminiscences And Regrets, Mark R. Elliott

The Asbury Journal

In this personal essay, originally given as an address delivered at the Sakharov Center, a human rights NGO in Moscow, Russia, on June 2, 2017, the author contemplates a lifetime of experience in the Southern United States and the prejudices and racism that he saw during that time. He relates these experiences to similar issues in Russia today, adding a Christian plea for equality and fair treatment for all people by the Christian community, and also calling on the Church to stand in opposition to racism and anti-Semitism wherever it appears.


Testing The Homiletical Buoyancy Of James K. A. Smith's "Narrative Arc" Approach To The Fall, Logan Patriquin Jan 2019

Testing The Homiletical Buoyancy Of James K. A. Smith's "Narrative Arc" Approach To The Fall, Logan Patriquin

The Asbury Journal

Pastors have long been under-resourced when it comes to deciphering how to craft intelligible, persuasive, and preachable sermons on some newly "settled" Christian academic position, particularly those surrounding the doctrine of the fall in light of contemporary science. The first three chapters of Genesis, along with the New Testament allusions to the edenic creation of humanity, need not inspire near the level of fear and trepidation that ministers have long associated with the public proclamation of human origins. We will examine a new resource in this discussion by James K. A. Smith, make a modification, and then test it in ...
