Thought Journal
Thought journals are an excellent way to force oneself to ponder issues and interact with
ideas over time. In this assignment option, the student will complete an indefinite number
of journal entries throughout the first 6 weeks of the course related to the Method of
Christ (Ecclesiology / Personal Disciple Making). Each entry will consist of a single
page, double spaced (preferably typed), and should meet several criteria: Each journal
entry should deal with a topic relevant to the Method of Christ (Ecclesiology / Personal
THEO 530
Page 2 of 2
Disciple Making), should demonstrate personal interaction with the issues involved, and
should demonstrate depth of thinking and clarity of expression.
Beyond these criteria, the student is encouraged to exercise creativity in writing the
journals. Some entries may critically analyze an issue from a given discussion or from
the text books. Others may consist of book reviews or even film reviews that are relevant
to the Method of Christ (Ecclesiology / Personal Disciple Making). We have had
students write poetry, and others have submitted MP3’s of songs that they have written in
response to course content. You must support at least three of your thought journals with
scriptural passages as well as with course/outside texts that properly address the issue
from a conservative evangelical point of view. Use of outside sources is not required for
all your journals entries, but is strongly encouraged for at least some of the journal
entries. This assignment must be 2,500–3,000 words, be original work, be in current
Turabian format, and use footnotes where needed.
please have 4 different journal entries
