THEO 6002: Christian Formation in Mission: Acts of Mercy and Justice
This is the second course students will take for the M.A. in Theology and the M.Div. degree programs. It introduces students to the practices of support and advocacy associated with what John Wesley called "works of mercy": feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, welcoming the stranger, caring for the sick, visiting prisoners, sheltering the homeless, and peacemaking toward the goal of changing social structures for the sake of the Gospel. Students live in the urban context of Seattle and engage in both the academic study and the practice of these acts of mercy. Personal works of mercy are connected to the necessity of the ongoing communal work of social justice. Focusing on such practices helps define the "apostolate" emphasis in the M.A. and M.Div degrees, and deepens students' understanding of and engagement in practices vital to the graduate program and to the ongoing life and ministry of the church. This course is structured vertically to deepen daily personal piety, and horizontally to broaden life in community.
