The Drama of Christian Ethics

WYT2912HF L6101 SESSION: Fall 2017 INSTRUCTOR(S): McManus, Patrick

COLLEGE: Wycliffe College SCHEDULE: N/A Online

CREDITS: One Credit

This course is designed as an introduction to the field of Christian ethics, not as a cerebral and academic discipline but as a lived, embodied Christian reality. It is designed with the intent of providing the student with a framework through which to understand what it means to live as the church within the complexities of the social, moral, and political world of the 21st century. The themes of drama, narrative, acting, and especially "improvisation" provide the conceptual lens through which we will engage various ethical complexities such as genetic-bio-ethical issues, sexuality, family and marriage, pacifism and war, or ecological ethics. This will be an online course with a written lecture format, weekly readings, student participation in weekly discussion questions, one minor assignment, and a final major paper.

Ethics and Society

TRT2942HF L0101 SESSION: Fall 2017 INSTRUCTOR(S): Wiebe, Donald

COLLEGE: Trinity College SCHEDULE: Mon TIME: 11:00 to 13:00

CREDITS: One Credit

The primary goal of this course is to help us think critically and sensitively about Christian values, norms, and commitments in ways that preserve a Christian orientation while taking into account the non-Christian and pluralistic context of modern society. Such thinking will involve a dialectical process where universal principles, values, and norms will be examined with reference to the particular experiences and realities that constrain human action and interaction. The aim is not to structure a strict formalistic ethical framework but rather to canvall various ethical methodologies, religious and secular, as resources for ethical thinking and praxis.
