Practicing Faith

STH TF 703

Situated in the first semester of the MDiv program, the Practicing Faith courses aim: 1) to increase the student's self-awareness of lived faith in dialogue with cultural and religious traditions and with attention to formative spiritual and religious texts and practices; 2) to develop the student's ability to reflect critically about practicing faith. MDiv Requirement (Optional for M.T.S.) A1 (Choi) This section will explore personal and communal practices of faith through an analysis of leadership in the context of culture, religious traditions, and religious communities; and through learning how power, authority and leadership interact and are exercised in multicultural society. B1 (Goto) Addressing practices at the personal, congregational, and social levels, we will investigate the role of the physical body in welcoming and embracing God's kingdom, and our accent will be on enacting and experiencing faith. C1 (Hassinger) This section explores leadership in the context of congregations and other organizations, grounded in spiritual life practices as individuals and groups. D1 (Schlauch) This section examines the incoherence of faith as it shows itself the various ways we practice multiple faiths, often professing a faith that is in conflict with the faith we actually live. Practicing an increasingly coherent faith involves examining, critically reflecting upon, and consequently revising the varieties of faiths each of us is practicing.
