TMRE 7089 Christian Religious Education, Ministry, & Culture (Spring: 3 )
This course focuses on the importance of cultural awareness in the practices of Christian religious education and ministry. Students are invited to reflect on the various embodiments of culture in our context (e.g., art, ethnicity, language, pop culture) and their potential to mediate the encounter between God and humanity. Embracing a theological-practical methodology, we will explore key concepts, such as inculturation, multiculturalism, and interculturalism. The course provides the resources for participants to envision effective strategies for Christian religious education and ministry that are culturally responsive and responsible.
