The Centre for the Development of Christian Ministry @ Trinity Theological College (TTC) which organises courses to equip Christians for lifelong learning, personal growth and ministry will be offering two evening courses from September to November 2016.
Course 7: Reformation: Then and Now
This is an historical survey of the Reformation. The course traces the circumstances that gave rise to the Reformation and the different religious, political and cultural forces that coalesced in birthing the Protestant church. It will examine the lives and legacies of some of the prominent reformers and the implications of Karl Barth's comment that "the church is always to be reformed" (Ecclesia semper reformanda est) for our present times.
Dates: Sep 28, Oct 5, 12, 19, 26, Nov 2 & 9 (8 Wednesday evenings)
Time and Place: 7:30 pm to 9:45 pm, St. Andrew’s Cathedral South Transept Hall (Sep 28) & North Transept Hall (Oct 5 - Nov 9), 11 St Andrew's Road, Singapore 178959
Instructor: Rev. Dr. Andrew Peh is a faculty of Trinity Theological College and lectures in the area of mission and mission history. He is an alumni of the college (TTC) and Asbury Theological Seminary and his interests are in the history of Christianity in Asia and mission trends in the 21st century. He also serves in the Chinese Annual Conference of the Methodist Church in Singapore as a diaconal minister appointed to Charis Methodist Church.
Course 8: Ethical Issues in Asia
Various ethical issues challenge Christians today: some as a result of the increased sophistication and pervasiveness of technology, others are dilemmas which arise because Christian values are at variance with the world’s. Since these issues are often contentious and divisive, Christians need to develop a theological framework so as to be able to be salt and light in society, with a posture of humility and grace articulating the Christian view. This course will give us the opportunity and to grow in this knowledge and develop these skills.
