It’s no secret that theological differences have damaged church relationships in the past. Studying and exploring scripture together in a way that draws us towards one another can be hugely beneficial.
In September 2019, we’re excited to be launching the Love Dudley Theology Network (LDTN). We believe that studying theology can make a huge difference to Christians and the local churches in which they serve.
The network is not about telling anyone what to think or reinforcing one particular theological tradition or view. It’s also not about arguing about contemporary hot topics. Instead, it is intended to stimulate and provoke thought and empower us to reap the benefits of theological study.
The Theology Network is a chance for Christians (especially leaders, but open to all who are interested) to come together and taste the benefits of theological study. Each time we will receive some quality input from a visiting theologian who will provoke and help us to think about a different area of theology. It’s all about stimulating us to think, open discussion and a chance to develop and grow. Each evening will be relaxed, informal, safe and warm.
We believe that theological study is of immense benefit for the person who engages with it and critical to the long-term health of the church in the Black Country (and beyond). These evenings aim to give a taste of that benefit, both to inspire those who may consider further study at some point, but also to feed those of us who cannot give up much time to study in the normal course of our lives.
