What guidance for life can we find in the spiritual heritage gifted to us by John and Charles Wesley?

This four-week course helps participants recapture the Wesleys’ vision of abundant life through an exploration of their theology and spirituality, paying particular attention to the holistic nature of this vision—a “both/and” approach holding faith and life together.

This course, taught by Paul Wesley Chilcote—a Methodist theologian and Director of the Centre for Global Wesleyan Theology at Wesley House, Cambridge—is based on the four major themes in his book, Recapturing the Wesleys’ Vision. Topics include:

  • The Message – orienting life around grace and love
  • The Community – embodying faith in a beloved family
  • The Discipline – rediscovering tested spiritual practices
  • The Servanthood – realizing a love that flourishes through service

PAUL W CHILCOTE is currently serving in retirement as Director of the Centre for Global Wesleyan Theology at Wesley House, Cambridge. An award-winning author and retired Methodist historian and theologian, he is the author or editor of nearly thirty books in the areas of Wesleyan theology, spirituality, and Christian discipleship and mission. His years of missionary service in Africa continue to shape his life and ministry. He has been a Benedictine oblate of Mt. Angel Abbey for nearly twenty-five years. He and his wife, Janet, a retired United Methodist pastor, have five daughters and seven grandchildren.
