DESCRIPTION: In this course, we will read Acts of the Apostles through the lens of Critical Race Theory, focusing on ancient categories of ethnicity and class. We will evaluate racial “othering” via the Christian Tradition in Acts of the Apostles. With a critical understanding of race, we will imagine church and community practices that engage race and power in public (common) spaces.

This introductory level course builds skills for pastoral care across the lifespan of individuals and families. It also presumes an interest in care for culture and social institutions as the collective context within which individual and communal identities develop and grow. Texts for the course focus on classic and contemporary models/paradigms and embedded theologies that inform the work of pastoral care.

The ultimate goal of this course is developing a theology and practice for living and doing ministry in a religiously pluralistic society and world. This goal is addressed concretely in this course by examining the relationship between Christianity and Judaism. And this relationship will be examined by studying the early interpretation of Scripture, how Jews and Christians, often beginning with the same text from the Hebrew Bible, developed identities and world views different from each other.
