Intro Pastor Theol Care
This advanced course integrates knowledge, capacities, and skills for practicing socially just, interreligious, and research-literate spiritual care of moral stress and injury. This course draws upon psychological research on acute moral stress/injury and moral foundations theory on how people use “intuitive ethics” when moral stress arises from conflicting values. Readings on socially just spiritual care focus on practices, beliefs, and values that lament harm done by religiously based violence. A spiritually integrative pedagogy uses (1) spiritual self-care practices and deep listening conversations about self-care; (2) a spiritually integrative assignment about a personal experience of moral stress; (3) conversations with a learning partner about this integrative assignment. These experiential components help students develop capacities for spiritual self-differentiation, empathy, and reflexivity. Prereq: IST 2012 Pastoral Theology and Care

Islam and Muslims have been perceived as a threat to democracy, freedom, and liberal values in many western nations and are subject to discrimination, surveillance, racial/ religious profiling, and physical attacks. Muslims have been demonized, constructed as enemies and face state supported violence, repression, and even genocide in other nations. Muslim women are viewed as backward and oppressed and their religious dress is being banned in many nations. What are the historical roots of this form of oppression? How does an Islamophobia industry support the ideologies that justify and legitimate policies and practices that subjugate and oppress Muslims globally? How do gendered and other intersectional forms of Islamophobia manifest? What are some strategies for countering Islamophobia ? This course explores these issues and many more facets of this global phenomenon.

Core themes are rooted in developing a spiritual and philanthropic cultural mindset of abundance that frees the individual and community from "scarcity mindedness," which is the fear of "never having enough." This approach regards fundraising and stewardship as a form of ministry that is deeply rooted in the Gospel and thus an aspect of pastoral care and leadership. Persons from other religious traditions will find a theological basis within their core belief system to undergird their fundraising praxis.

What have Christian believed and written about the Holy Spirit through the centuries? Why does Pentecost show up in such different ways across the pages of Christian theology and literature? The midst of the European Enlightenment, why did John Wesley hold such special reverence for the role of experience in Christian thought and education? Why has the Pentecostal legacy functioned simultaneously as a subversive trope for critiquing dominant church paradigms while also sparking creative, re-interpretations of Christian tradition among so many reformers? These are just a few of the questions explored in this class as we discuss historical and theological works by contemporary scholars in pneumatology and church history.

Germans refer to the period of roughly 1770-1850 as the Sattelzeit, or “Saddle Era”—the time between the end of the early modern world and Europe and the modern world. During this era basic assumptions that we continue to make about what religion is and what gender is are constructed. This is also the era when what we think of a Judaism is re-shaped in major ways. Through a close reading of primary texts by Jewish women we will examine the intersection of gender, Judaism, and religion and examine the modern construction of these categories.
