Wesley Weekly #51 – Religion and Global Systems

Hello Everyone! Welcome back to the Wesley Foundation at MSU.

We are starting our new semester and kicking off our new theme. After talking with the students, we decided to examine Religion and Global Systems.

Please stick around with us this semester as we wrestle with some very difficult concepts.

What you may have missed…

Last semester we tackled the tense subject of American religious extremism. We evaluated in detail the current Christian Nationalist Movement, and many of those influences that lead us to this time in our history.

We looked at Colonialism, the Rise of Conservative Evangelicalism, Televangelism, and the Moral Majority, and numerous other influences.

All in all, we finished with a perspective of hope and that love is the central aspect of how our faith demonstrates itself.

This Week

This week we will be kicking off our theme of Religion and Global Systems.

We’ll be evaluating the impact of religion on both American and non-American cultures, and how those religious expressions have bo influenced the various structures

We will start by first looking at the Marketization and Financing of Pop-Christianity.
