How do the church and concerned Christians address social justice issues in their local communities and the world community? What is the Biblical and prophetic basis for the church’s involvement in social justice? What power does the church have to address concerns of human rights and to act with and for of the victims of social injustice? This short course will engage both the theology and practice of social justice. For the Biblical context and theology, the book of Amos will serve as a basis for defining two “voices”: the “Prophet” who is a spokesperson of God’s justice and the “Reformer” who seeks to embody and institutionalize social justice. To understand the practice of social justice today, the course will use a current social justice issue as a case study. Particular attention will be given to the issue of how people/classes/groups, especially the church and concerned Christians, use and incorporate power in pursuing the ideals of social justice.

In this brief course students will be introduced to central topics of ongoing discussion within the Christian church.  Topics or teachings we will explore include the Trinity, the Bible, creation and humanity, sin, Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Church and hope for this world and the next.

In our discussion of these themes we will pay particular attention to the challenges and prospects for Christian confession in a time like ours.  We will address questions like: ‘What difference does our confession of God as Creator make to the current ecological crisis?’, “What does it mean to be human if we are made in God’s image?’,  ’What does Jesus save us from and for and how did he do it?’ and “Why do churches seem so afraid of the work of the Spirit?’

By taking this course students will become more fluent in central Christian teachings and so better able to make sense of their lives and world Christianity.
