December 2021 Course Descriptions
Christian Theology I
This course provides a biblical, historical, and systematic overview of the following Christian concepts: Revelation, the Bible, God, Creation, Humanity and Sin. The goal of this course is to provide students enrolled on the diaconal track (as well as lay students interested in personal enrichment) with a theological foundation for effective ministry in the world today.
Foundations of Ethics
Christian Ethics is a field of study in which theological reflection is employed to develop a normative account of the moral life of Christians. This course acquaints students with Christian Ethics as a theological discipline and field of study, provides tools to articulate an account of the Christian moral life, and considers the relationship between theology and the practice of ethics in the life of the Church.
This course surveys the many aspects of pastoral care and counseling for the parish priest and deacon. The course examines the biblical and theological foundations of pastoral care and counseling (including its history and the basic models in use today), the placement of this form of ministry in the context of parish life, how pastoral care and counseling fit into the community context of mental health services, legal and ethical issues involved, resources available, and various occasions for care and counsel from the pastor.
