Welcome to the Epworth Pulpit! This site is a project of the Center for Faith & Culture at Olivet Nazarene University. Our project is the intersection of faith and culture, where Christian life and ministry happen. You will find resources for thinking about ministry and engaging issues posed by our engagement with culture. You may also add your perspective to the conversation, Following each article you will find a place to enter your comments. Please feel welcome to contribute.

In this issue you will find articles dealing with gay marriage and the church, human trafficking, leading worship, and rethinking the missional church in a postmodern context. We also host Pulso Hispano, an ongoing conversation among our Spanish speakers.

Next month, look for articles dealing with creation care, holiness and immigration, exploring a theology of person, and using the rhythms of the church year to bring families together through worship.

Our archive of prior articles continues to make them available to you. Feel free to explore our library of resources.
