Contemplation and Accompaniment
Sacred Dying: Pastoral Care, End of Life,
and the 21st Century
with Megory Anderson
This course offers an overview of the current medical landscape, skills needed for those who accompany people at end of life, and practical models for pastoral care of the dying. It is designed to meet needs of faith communities and is intended for clergy and laity alike.
The Unfolding of Christian Community
in the 21st Century
with Beth-Ann Estock
How often have we heard, “Where are all the young people? Why aren’t they in our church?” This class will explore cultural shifts impacting ministry in the 21st century, and look at innovative examples of faith communities. The course will also discern practices to develop experiments in reaching folks who are spiritual but not religious.
New Christian Reformers and the Jews
with Peter Ochs
A Jewish philosopher teaches about a collection of contemporary Christian theologians (Lindbeck, Hauerwas and 5 more) who renew and refine Reformation teachings in surprising ways, affirming both robust theology and engagement with inter-religious conversations.
