Reflecting

E. Stanley Jones School of World Mission and Evangelism: This past week in the weekly ESJ seminar, five Asbury professors presented on their experiences at Edinburgh and Capetown.  Dr. Kima Pachuau and Dr. Terry Muck reflected on their time at the Lasaunne missions conference while Dr. Steve O’Malley, Dr. Beverly Johnson Miller, and Dr. Eunice Irwin reflected on their time at the 100 year celebration of the missions confrence that changed the world.

Of note, during the session was the chance for the participants of the Wednesday seminar to reflect on how God has worked in the world in the last 100 years.  Members from Kenya, Uganda, China, Papau New Guinea, Korea, and India all testified to God’s great work in each place.

The ESJ Seminar in Missiology meets every Wednesday morning, 8:15-9:30 am.  The focus of the seminar is on spiritual formation, community formation, and development of academic skills.  For more information you can contact the seminar facilitator Dr. Eunice Irwin.

Chapel: This last Friday, Dean of Chapel JD Walt hosted the final of three conversations aiming to enrich the chapel experience. Walt led the group as they honed in on a definition of global worship and surveyed five preliminary non-negotiables of any global worship experience: mutuality, testimonies, full sensory, variety, and shared leadership.

The group will gather again in April to sense whether or not these elements get us closer to a “global worship experience”.  To engage with the conversation contact Keith Jagger at keith.jagger@asburyseminary.edu

Campus Life: On Friday, the International Leadership Team hosted a Christmas Party for its international students and their children.  The crew deliverede presents to over 100 children.  Presents were collected from the gracious Asbury community.

The party was also a celebration for Asbury’s Graduating International Students from India, Nigeria, South Korea, Philippines, Brunei and Pakistan.
