Offered in Fall 2014  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2012 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

God/Sex/Word/Flesh: Gender, Theology, and the Body

Offered in Fall 2014  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2010 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

How is our agenda for theology related to our gender? Is "God" a male word? Is the "Word made flesh" a male God? Does the experience of women change how God is (made) known? Is sexuality embraced by the resurrection? Attentive to the work of feminist theologians and biblical scholars, we will attempt to develop an "embodied" theology open to the biblical vision that God will be "all in all".

From the Gospel to the Gospels (NT I)

Offered in Fall 2014  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2013 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

An introduction to the four Gospels in their social, historical and theological settings. Using a "socio-literary" approach, we will study the Gospels within a two-dimensional framework, both centred on what the early Christians called the "gospel" or "Kerygma." One dimension has to do with social history, the origin and development of Christianity as a distinct social entity, from its foundations in the ministry of Jesus and the Easter experience, through its emergence as a Jewish renewal movement, and on to its development into a separate, largely Gentile, institutionalized religion. The second dimension has to do with literature, the process by which the Gospels came to be written, their literary form and texture, and their character as narrative versions of the "gospel." Tutorial from 10 - 11 am. Weekly lectures; assigned papers; final exam or integration paper.

Ministry Integration Seminar

Offered in Fall 2014  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2013 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course is an opportunity for students to practice integrating their pastoral, practical experience (congregational leadership, supervised internship and/or site placement) with their more theoretical learnings from previous course work. With instructors, teaching assistants and classmates, each student will identify where their experience has helped them identify gaps in their preparation for ministry. Students will be encouraged to understand that the questions and feelings that present themselves at the intersection of what ministry asks of them and what they do not yet have to offer, are guides leading to new learning and growth. Attending to these feelings and questions is a life-long exercise. As part of a community of active learning, each student will be supported in identifying focused learning needs and developing pathways to address those needs. Using the perspective that every learner is a teacher, and every teacher is a learner, each student will make a class presentation and participate in collaborative communal education through group discussion and peer learning groups. Individual learning will be demonstrated in a variety of ways. Through these means, students will practice the integration of theoretical and practical theological activity that will further equip them to offer resilient, adaptive, vibrant leadership in ministry. Evaluation: class presentation, attendance, assignments, final paper.  Prerequisite: EMF 3020Y Contextual Education.
