Teaching in Panama

For the last several years, I have had the privilege to teach the lay Pastors in Panama. This year, I'm going to teach Church History Survey.
The 12 periods of Church History

Era of the Gospel  4 B.C. - 33 A.D.
Era of the New Testament   33-100 A.D.
Era of the Universal "Catholic" Church
100-312 A.D.
Era of the "Christian" Roman Empire
312-590 A.D.
Era of the Medieval Church 590-800 A.D.
Era of the Holy Roman Empire 800-1054 A.D.
Era of the Crusades  1054-1305 A.D.
Era of the Renaissance and Rise of 
Nation-States  1305-1517 A.D.
Era of the Reformation  1517-1648 A.D.
Era of Rationalism and Revival 1648-1789 A.D.
Era of Liberalism, Progress and Missions  1789-1914 A.D.
Era of Modern Ideologies, Secularism, and Humanism 1914-present

Each era of Church History has made its own positive and negative contributions in the areas of doctrine and practice.  Only by seeing the "big picture" of Church History can we have a proper perspective on why the Church is where it is today and what the Church should be doing.

Cathy and I will be flying out Monday, July 15th to Panama City, Panama.  I will be teaching each evening from 6 to 9pm.  Please keep us in your prayers.  Thanks
