Deep Down on the Edge:
Christianity on the Margins
Explore the wild physical, social and theological Christian landscapes in Great Britain. From the Greenbelt Christian Arts Festival in Cheltenham, England to fringe ministries in London & Glasgow to the Isle of Iona, Scotland - a fierce, medieval landscape where the line between the physical and the spiritual is paper thin. For centuries, the margins of the church have been a place where Christians have more faithfully been able to discern the call of Christ. Deep Down on the Edge takes participants to the margins to examine what Christianity looks like there and on the journey, perhaps have their own faith renewed.
The 3 credit hour course is open to both undergraduate and graduate students for BTS and Church Music credit.
