This course is structured around four essential questions that are raised by thoughtful ministerial practice: (1) Who are we as individuals? What is the larger frame of our identity and our vocation? (2) What is the mission of the church? (3) What is the world like? How do we “read” the world? and (4) How do we make a difference?How does change occur? A number of different resources will be used to inform the inquiry carried on in the course, including, importantly, student experience.
