Description: 

Numerous historical and social forces shape what we think ministry is and how we practice it. Each of us inherits and embodies these forces to varying degrees of disadvantage and privilege. In this course, students learn to analyze and respond to the multiple social forces at play in diverse ministry contexts, particularly as each relates to their own social location. In addition to providing space for vocational reflection on the self-in-context, this course calls students to responsibility for the role they play in within the "cult of normalcy." Our task is integrative. Students explore and nurture connections between their learnings in this class and others, their prior and current ministry, faith and life experiences, all with a view to the topic of their own vocation.
