Community-Based Assessment and Design

Offered in Fall 2012  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2011 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

Residents of urban at-risk communities often have ministry done to them by well-meaning people. Organizations (non-proftis, churches, government, etc.) swoop in with money, people and resources and tell the community what they need. Playgrounds are erected overnight, murals painted over, or gardens appear without anyone asking the people who live there what they want. The message that no one listens is reinforced in their minds. God's concept of "shaolm" is not one of doing to people but one of inviting people to participate in their own community development. Students in this course will develop the skills necessary to engage a local community. This approach is guided through the development tools of community assessment (listening to the community) and project design, monitoring and evaluation (responding with the coomunity to a limitation). At the end of this course students will have the skills necessary to involve the community in its own restoration.

Monastic & Missional: Benedict's Ancient-Future Spirituality

Against the backdrop of revived enthusiasm for "Traditional Latin Liturgy” in parts of the Catholic Church in recent years, this course will invite students to a deep engagement with the historical processes that transformed the loosely organized local liturgical traditions of early medieval Rome and Gaul into a sophisticated pan-European rite.  Close study of the various annual cycles of prayers, readings and chants of the Mass and Divine Office, along with the external religious and political pressures that shaped their development over time, will be combined with an investigation of how liturgists and ordinary worshippers of different periods during the Middle Ages interpreted their liturgies as a unified system that both expressed theological truth and was itself a fitting object of theological reflection.

This course investigates the religious grounds for peacemaking today. Each student will be responsible for following and reporting on developments in one location represented by a Tanenbaum “Peacemaker-in-Action” throughout the course. Meanwhile, the evolution of the theological/ecclesial/interfaith discussion of peacemaking will be traced through the 20th century debate between pacifism and just war; conflict resolution and transformation; peacekeeping, peacemaking and peacebuilding; humanitarian aid and development; NGOs and the military. Students will be expected to explore these debates in relation to their “case study” and may write the case study from the perspective of any faith.

Embodiment and Christian Theology

Offered in Winter 2013  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

 This seminar course explores the role of bodies and embodiment by analyzing particular contexts in Christian history and contemporary life. It raises and seeks to answer questions about death, suffering, and the after life, about the relationship between body, minds and soul, about sex, race, gender and dis/ability, about the body as a locus of knowledge/ wisdom, and about religious identity and agency. Putting historical readings from the early church, Medieval Christianity, and Modernity in dialogue with contemporary theological texts, students develop historical understanding of contemporary issues related to embodiment and Christian practice. Student engagement with the course will be evaluated by level and quality of participation, an in-class presentation on one set of readings, two short papers (~2 pages each), and a final paper 12-15 pages). This course qualifies as a designated spirituality elective at EM.
