Community Development: Tools and Practices for Transformation

Offered in Summer 2014  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

In the last three decades, disappointment with traditional "top-down" international development delivered by external experts began to propel community-driven approaches from the margins to the centre of development practice. This family of community development approaches includes a range of siblings with names such as grassroots development, people-centred development, participatory learning and action (PLA), capabilities-based development, and assets-based community development. Marginalized communities are offered capacities to shape the direction
of their own lives, and to challenge and change unjust social, political and economic structures.

These participatory approaches elevated local people and their organizations to central roles in decision-making and implementation of development strategies. To be sustainable and effective, community transformation requires local agents of change who focus on developing local capacities and skills. These change agents - whether local church or community organization leaders or practitioners - need to be well-equipped with knowledge and tools to inspire, guide and facilitate change processes that match well the local context and conditions. Through the rich past and present of community development, a range of tools and practices have emerged worthy of study and application. This course introduces participants to a selection of these approaches that have proven valuable to organizations and practitioners involved in mobilizing, building and catalyzing community development initiatives. At the heart of community development processes stands the development facilitator, her/his effectiveness depends on a this set of knowledge, skills and tools.

Art, Spirituality, and the Quest for Transcendent Meaning

Offered in Summer 2014  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course will study the spiritual and philosophical thrusts that profoundly changed western art during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Starting with German Romanticism and through a journey of French Realism, Impressionism, Symbolism and Abstraction, the course will reveal the quest for new visual languages that could express transcendent meaning. Based on careful analysis of representative paintings within their art historical, religious and philosophical contexts, students will acquire a grasp of different approaches to the analysis of a painting and will learn how to integrate contextual layers in order to explore and contemplate their underlying spirituality.

Suffering and Hope

Offered in Summer 2014  ·  Previously offered in Summer 2013 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course explores the practical and theological intersections of suffering and hope. Drawing from the Scriptures, social sciences, constructive and pastoral theology and practice, we will consider ways to understand, recognize and practice hope in the context of the devastations and suffering in life. Far from dismissing suffering in the face of hope, this course explores the hidden intersections and discontinuities between suffering and hope and seeks out a deeper ground for hope that does not flee or obscure the trauma, grief and injustice in life, but faces it head on in theology and practice. Lectures, readings, seminars. Reflection paper, book review presentation, case study, class participation, final paper.
