Wesley House Cambridge, in partnership with Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C., hosted the first DMin Cohort, a joint venture between the two institutions. More information about the program can be found at http://www.wesley.cam.ac.uk/courses/dmin/.
Participants had this to say about the course:
The Revd Edgardo Rivera writes:
“As a Latino serving in the United States, I welcome the opportunity for dialogue with persons in a variety of ministry contexts.
Cambridge offers a great set-ting for this program with its rich educational history and beauty. I am grateful for hos-pitality at the Wesley House and for the prospect of deep theological reflection to explore new insights for the 21st century.”
Revd Charles Fiske from Liberia writes:
“The DMin program at Wes-ley House Cambridge is uniquely inspiring , educative, and reflective as it gives me the opportunity to interact with world class professors as well as seeing and touching some physical features of my Wesleyan roots. It also gives me the opportunity to meet friends from a cross section of various denominations and experience a true sense of a warm British hospitability.
Many thanks to the organizers and participants of this very important program in an ideal place like Cambridge.”
The Revd Laura Norvell from the US writes:
“Time in Cambridge was about context shifting. Sitting in a classroom with leaders from several countries encouraged me to suspend my as-sumptions about what I know and experience to look differently at scripture, reason, experience and tradition, to listen deeply and to seek to understand. Being in a different and new physical setting helped that shift. And sharing life with new friends and colleagues was a helpful re-treat that sent me back to my work with a fresh perspective and recommitment to the world as my parish as well as new hope for global collaboration to share the good news of the Gospel.”
