Every year, Wesley Forum invites unique and interesting people to share their insights into how Wesleyan theology contributes to a vibrant, intelligent, and authentic faith. We are honored to welcome Chris Armstrong, PhD, a church historian and director of Opus: The Art of Work at Wheaton College. He studies faith, work, and flourishing to see how theology is lived out.
He will be exploring ways in which C.S. Lewis and John Wesley, as well as other “Sages of the Ages,” speak into how Christians can live out their faith in the world through work, vocation, and human flourishing.
- Work and the Gospel Story
- Wesley, the early Methodists, and Economic Work
- C.S. Lewis on Finding God in Our Work
