How can Scripture expand our capacity to envision God’s presence in our time, and how can examples from Methodist history help us recognize these new possibilities?

We invite you to join Duke Divinity School in “Cultivating a Scriptural Imagination,” the first of five courses in the Rediscovering the Heart of Methodism series, designed to help engaged laypeople and clergy (including local pastors in licensing schools) develop core capacities for innovative leadership within the Wesleyan tradition. Each course includes four weeks of interactive video lessons from Duke Divinity School faculty and Methodist leaders, plus a course workbook PDF including exercises to accompany each video lesson and discussion guides for group meetings.

Through this course, we hope you will experience a deeper grounding in the distinctive elements of Methodism at its best, and a renewed capacity for hopeful, imaginative participation in the mission of God.
