The Mediator - Volume XIV, Number 1 July 2019

English

The present Mediator issue is an exercise in Wesleyan theology. We begin with a study of pneumatology from a Wesleyan perspective, with special emphasis on implications for the Church (Davis). This is followed by four articles that explore experiential aspects of theology as demonstrated by Wesleyan-Holiness women (Pring) and as recommended for work with children (Lotha and Olumbe) and adults (Ning Ngaih Lian). Rounding out this issue, once again we feature the abstracts from the theses and dissertations of the current graduates from APNTS’s various degree programs.

Listening and learning from various entities on the perceived dynamics that help children thrive: Implications for practical action towards holistic mission and discipleship of children

Background of the Study This section is adapted from Menchit Wong’s prospectus for PH CAR Forum entitled, “Moving from Risk to Thriving: On Mission To, For, and With Children-At-Risk” (Wong 2018, 1). The 2010 Third Lausanne Compress on World Evangelization produced the Cape Town Commitment (CTC) Call to Action on Children. This was truly a defining moment in Evangelical Church history.

Worship Plot: Finding Unity in Our Common Story

Author, Editor, Compiler, etc.: 
Dan Boone

Many churches today are caught in the worship war. Services are split into styles--contemporary, traditional, liturgical. Discussions and sometimes arguments arise over whether or not to have a pulpit, use drums, sing hymns, or use movie clips for illustration. These varying styles and preferences have caused many to change churches or even skip worship all together. This division of the Body of Christ is a cause for great concern and is jeopardizing the true meaning of worship for future generations.
