PRE-REQUISITES: EMP1741H or EMP1021H and specific foundational courses in student's program CREDITS: One Credit

The core goal of Emmanuel College's Contextual Education Program is integrative; students integrate their learning from across the theological curriculum through critical engagement with their practices of ministry and pastoral care. In this way, the program seeks to equip students with the theological acumen, pastoral instincts, and personal/spiritual dispositions that are required for cultivating a sense of call in the flux of 21st century religious life. Questions of gifts, growing edges and discernment of call are inevitably part of this reflective process. Contextual Education intends both to reflect on and to re-imagine modes of religious practice that can contribute to the healing of each other and creation.
