•A CD set (three CDs). Contact ExL support (type that in the address line of an email in First Class) if you have any difficulties running these. If you have trouble running the digitized video on the CDs, make sure you have you have Quicktime 6 or higher installed on your computer. It is available on the CDs. When running the CDs, turn up the sound on your computer’s speakers beforehand. The sound quality on some videos is marginal. CD #1 contains the material for the two Touchstone Churches. These churches are semi-fictitious congregations that we will use for assignments and discussion. See below for more information. CD #2 contains the material for modules #1 (Story) and #2 (Week). The materials for module #1 are all short lecture segments. #2 has lectures and a video clip of a worship service. CD #3 contains the material for modules #3 (Year), #4 (Day), and #5 (Pastoral Rites). The first two modules have both lecture and worship videos. The last only has lecture video. •Two books to be purchased. Both are available in the seminary’s bookstore: --Hickman, Hoyt, et al. The New Handbook of the Christian Year. Nashville: Abingdon Press, 1992. ISBN 0-687-22760-4 --Blain, Susan A. et al., editors. Imaging the Word: An Arts and Lectionary Resource, volume 2. Cleveland: United Church Press, 1995. ISBN 0-8298-1033-1 The Asbury Seminary bookstore will also have available a very nice artistic poster representing the entire Church year. It is called the Year of Grace Poster Calendar 2004. The ISBN is 1-56854-416-2. This is a recommended acquisition, not a required one. •Something to keep as a journal as you devotionally use Charles Wesley’s Charles Wesley’s Hymns for the Great Festivals (available in the course center in the class folder on ExL and on the course website) and the book entitled Imaging the Word. More information is given below. •Clean paper and writings instruments in each class. You will be asked to do quite a few immediate, in-class responses.
