SYE 4013 - The United Brethren Church and Otterbein’s Tradition of Service

Hours: 4
This course will first of all explore the historical roots of our tradition of service. We will study the origin and growth of the United Brethren in Christ in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, including its involvement in the causes of Abolition and of missions, and its response to liberal theology and the social gospel, its stance on Prohibition, and its engagement with education. On that basis we will explore the church’s continuing involvement in issues of social and economic morality and justice and the continued evolution of missions and international service, through two church mergers that eventually brought the United Brethren in Christ together with the Methodists to form the United Methodist Church.
