Theological Reflection Seminar

Offered in Winter 2010  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2009 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course consists of two parts: A) Practical Theology Seminar (0.5 Credit for RGF3040) - a seminar for first year students to develop the skills of theological reflection through which to reflect on personal faith development, a call to ministry, and an integration of personal experience and theology into a development of ministerial practice. Class participation, personal reflection papers, a final synthesis paper as well as workshops in pastoral skills, liturgy and personal identity will help to facilitate formation. B) Theological Reflection Seminar (0.5 Credit for RGF3040) - follows or runs concurrently with the theological field education ministry placement. The process of theological reflection enables the student to understand and assess their ministry in the context of personal faith and the theology they are studying in the total program. The remainder of the weekly meetings are spent in theological reflection on case studies of ministry events experienced by class members. Means of Evaluation: Case studies. Pass/Fail course.
