A lot of reading
I have three 20-page papers to do for 1 Dec 2003, one for each class.
1. Ecclesiology in context: I have been reading all the church fathers' statements on the church as collected in the Ante-Nicene Fathers & Nicene & Post-Nicene Fathers (series 1 and 2). This has now spilled over into the medieval writers (namely Aquinas) and the Reformers (Calvin is dense, by the way). Contemporary ecclesiologies (Ziziolas, Rahner, Kung, Volf, Newbigin, etc.) will be incorporated as well. All of this to address the contemporary distinctions and questions regarding what (and who) the church is.
2. Discipling and Mentoring: In 20 pages, analyze your church context for disciple-making deficit and propose solutions to that deficit. After you have presented this to your professor, present this to your church leaders and hope they take it well.
3. Galatians Exegesis: Write an exegetical paper on Galatians 1:6 - 11. In other words, say as much as you can about Galatians in 20 pages.
