Religious Pluralism and Ministry: Chicago and Beyond
|Field of Study||Theology|
An introduction to tradition-based and inter-religious models and strategies for ministry with persons and communities of more than one faith. We focus on the diversity of faith communities in the global city of Chicago through communities of faith, interfaith agencies, and movements. Students meet representatives and communities of multiple traditions. Philosophic-theological frameworks and practical strategies will be interrogated. Site visits to houses of worship are part of the course on scheduled weekends.
Prerequisite: Introduction to Theology (T-300) or equivalent.
This course is team taught with adjunct instructor Jannan Hashim
