How could a tiny, disorganized religious sect, their leader supposedly dead, become the most influential force in history? Does the history of the faith show the clear presence and supervision of Christ through the Holy Spirit, notwithstanding appearances (or disappearances) sometimes to the contrary? Where do the various parts of the Church fit into the picture?

Dr. Lilburn E. Wesche, the leading instructor, planned the curriculum, which holds interest and value for the following:

Everyone: inquirers, Christians of whatever theological persuasion or church-is warmly invited to attend the series, which is presented without charge as a service to inquirers and the Church as a whole, by Epworth Chapel on the Green, a church which is Wesleyan in theology, Anglican in worship, orthodox in teaching, evangelical in mission, and ecumenical in thought.
