Summarize and respond to the lecture material in a roughly two-page paper, highlighting key points and applying the insights gained from the history of the Church in the 18th and 19th centuries to your own life and local church experience.
Specifically, for each lecture, you should write one full paragraph that summarizes the overall point(s) of the lecture, with enough detail to demonstrate that you have thoughtfully listened to the lecture. For each lecture, also write one paragraph of response, expanding on any point that you found interesting, inspiring, or thought-provoking. Demonstrate in your response paragraphs how the 18th and 19th-century Church’s experience relates to your own life, your own church experience, and today’s world.
