Assignments:

1. After reading Thielicke, write a 5 to 10 pages paper on what does it mean for you to do theology in your context, which is postcolonial, postmodern and post christian. How can a Pentecostal person of color do theology in today’s UK?

2. Read González. Pick one of the topics he develops in depth for a congregational study. Your topic may be: The Bible, Culture, God, The Human Being, Jesus Christ, The Church, The Sacraments, Salvation, Tradition or Hope (Eschatology). Present the Bible Study to your congregation and send me either a 10 pages Study Guide or a PowerPoint Presentation with a minimum of 30 slides. If you record your congregational presentation in audio or video, please send it too.

Papers should be typed, double-spaced, 12 point font (Times, New Roman, Helvetica or Arial). Please, identify all sources with footnotes.

Deadlines for both papers: January 31, 2018.
