During the Winter 2020 term, St. John’s College will co-sponsor two theology courses with Canadian Mennonite University (who will be granting course credit). These courses can be taken at either the undergraduate or graduate level.
“The Christian Life” with Graham MacFarlane at St. Margaret’s Anglican Church in Winnipeg on Tuesday evenings, 6:30 through 9:30 p.m. This course focuses on various aspects of the Christian life flow from the prior acts of God. The course considers the life of the individual Christian and the life of the Church. It explores how ethics and ecclesiology are grounded in the doctrine of God.
“History of Liturgy: Eucharist” with Andrew Rampton at St. John’s College on Tuesdays from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. This course traces the origins and development of Western eucharistic liturgies. Primary and secondary sources will be explored with an aim to critical assessment of why liturgies change, develop, and evolve in the ways that they do in particular contexts (cultural, economic, geographical, political, etc.). Sources used are slanted strongly toward Western practice, particularly Anglican and Roman Catholic, but Protestant liturgical developments are not ignored.
Either of the above courses can be taken for credit, or on a formal audit basis, or for your own personal formation. For information on how to register or about the courses, please contact Heather McCance at [email protected].
