The 2011 Wesley Heritage Celebration at Methodist University will be Nov. 16. The day will begin at 11 a.m. with worship and a lecture featuring Dr. Mark Wethington in Hensdale Chapel.
Dr. L. Elbert Wethington, a Durham native and retired religion professor, challenged Methodist University personnel to find a new way of engaging Methodist University students more directly in the annual Wesley Heritage Celebration. The result was a contest in which 2,400 MU students were invited to submit proposals for creative, multimedia projects that would showcase the lives and legacies of John Wesley and/or Charles Wesley. Students were encouraged to let their creative imaginations soar and create a video; an original piece of art, music, or drama; or even a Wesley-style sermon in modern language.
A lunch for alumni will follow at noon. For more information, go to Wesley Heritage.
