3.00 Cr
Ethical Reasoning, Faith & Reason-Theology. This class explores the much needed yet often ignored relationship between spirituality and justice from the Christian perspective. Students will explore contemporary justice issues that continue to challenge our world today, such as poverty, racism, gender inequality, war and violence, globalization, and ecological degradation. Students will learn how the Christian tradition provides a wealth of spiritual and theological responses to these crises. Students will critically analyze responses to these issues using various understandings of spiritualities of justice found in Sacred Scriptures, patristic writings, Catholic Social Teaching, and various contemporary theological and spiritual texts. Finally, this course is designed to help students learn to develop life-giving, contemporary spiritual practices that help them live just and meaningful lives.
