This Church History course is called the Bede Series. It is sponsored by the History and Apologetics website. There are currently twelve sessions, each covering either one hundred years or two hundred years. The program can be done on a weekly or monthly basis. Each session is based around one of the handouts linked below.
|Bede Series Handouts|
To facilitate each session, the session leader prints one of the handouts as a double-sided single sheet of paper, and passes out copies of it to the participants. Then, they use the Church History timeline at the top of each page and read the corresponding Church History quotes one by one, reading as a group. The session leader facilitates a discussion of how to understand these events in light of divine providence.
The program is best used in a small group setting, but if there is a larger group the session leader can have groups of four to six people discuss Church History events in separate circles. Then, later in the session, the circles can come back together for a group discussion of anything they learned that helped them appreciate Church History.
If you would be interested in using this program with your group, please contact the History and Apologetics website creator, Daniel Marcum. His contact info can be found on the About Me page.
