The Fifteenth Oxford Institute

August 4 - August 11

Theme: The World is My Parish: Glad Tidings of Salvation in an Age of Crisis

The current age is marked by a host of interconnected global crises. These include widening economic inequity, systemic racism, the collapse of earth systems, the broad yet unequal impact of climate destabilization, political corruption, misogyny, discrimination against LGBTQ persons, and related forms of social violence, psychological distress, and civic instability. Wesleyan and Methodist communities have often drawn impetus and insight for addressing such issues from their core inherited convictions about the nature of salvation and holiness. Encouraged by this precedent, the 15th Oxford Institute of Methodist Theological Studies will take up the work of public theological, biblical, historical, moral, and pastoral reflection on matters of sin and salvation, attentive to the distinctive resources of Wesleyan-Methodist traditions, for the sake of the threatened world God so loves.
